Extracts  from  Letters  received— 

Lieut. -Colonel   Robert    Maunsell,    Fanstown,    Kilmallock,  and    78   George  Street, 
Limerick,  says — 

"As  present  representative  of  tlie  Irish  Brancli  of  the  Maunsells,  I  write  to  say  how 
much  pleased  I  am  with  your  interesting  and  beautifully  got  up  book.  The  pictures 
of  the  different  places  add  much  to  the  interest  of  it." 

General  Sir  F.  R.  Maunsell,  K.C.B.,  32  Ashley  Gardens,  London,  S.W.,  says— 

"  I  must  corgratulate  you  and  the  family  on  this  excellent  and  interesting  work,  and 
I  think  all  the  family  owe  IVIr.  Maunsell  thanks  for  the  pains  he  took.  It  must  have 
been  a  pretty  severe  task." 

Major-General  Thomas  Maunsell,  C.B.,  Ballywilliam,  Co.  Limerick,  and  Burghclerei 
Co.  Berks.,  says  — 

"  Having  waited  to  look  over  the  book,  kindly  inform  Mr.  Maunsell  that  I  am  very  much 
pleased  with  his  work.     It  has  been  well  turned  out  and  completed  by  your  firm." 

Rev.  C.  H.  Maunsell,  Thorpe  Malsor  Hall,  says — 

"  I  received  my  copies  of  the  book  safely,  and  am  much  pleased  with  it,  and  think  the 
illustrations  very  good.  I  hope  it  will  have  a  good  sale,  and  I  think  all  members 
of  the  family  may  well  feel  exxeedingly  obliged  to  Mr.  Maunsell  for  compiling  such 
a  valuable  work." 

Lieut.-Colonel  F.  R.  Maunsell,  R.A.,  Military  Attache,  Constantinople,  says— 
"  It  is  extremely  well  got  up  and  printed." 

Lieut.-Colonel  George  J.  Maunsell,  of  Torquay,  says — 

"  I  congratulate  you  and  Mr.  Maunsell  on  the  highly  creditable  manner  in  which  it 
has  been  compiled  and  printed." 

Colonel  C.  A.  Maunsell,  of  Poyle  Hill,  Tongham,  says — 

"Kindly  express  my  thanks  to  Mr.  Maunsell  for  the  great  care  and  trouble  he  has 
taken  in  collecting  all  this  most  interesting  matter.  I  think  the  entire  family  owe 
him  a  deep  debt  of  gratitude." 

W.    Pryce    Maunsell,    Esq.,    B.A.,     Barrister  at-Law,     Fairyfield,     Kilmallock,    and 
5  Martello  Terrace,   Kingstown,  says — 

"This  History  of  the  Maunsell  Family,  from  the  Conquest  down  to  the  present  times, 
has  been  admirably  compiled,  and  the  various  English,  Welsh,  and  Irish  branches 
welded  into  one  harmonious  whole.  The  manner  in  which  the  relationship  is 
shown  among  its  members,  more  especially  those  eminent  in  politics,  war,  or 
literature,  such  as  the  Chancellor  in  Henry  III.'s  reign,  the  celebrated  General 
who  was  the  first  to  capture  cannon  with  cavalry,  his  distinguished  descendant, 
the  Dean  of  St.  Paul's,  and  my  own  immediate  ancestor  who  defended  MocoUop 
Castle  against  the  army  of  Oliver  Cromwell,  is  highly  creditable.  Mr.  Maunsell 
deserves  the  thanks  of  all  the  family  for  the  admirable  way  in  which  he  has 
accomplished  his  work." 

Colonel  W.  D.  Dickson,  J.P.,  of  Kildimo,  Co.  Limerick,  and  Bournemouth,  says — 

"  The  book  is  well  got  up,  and  contains  a  great  amount  of  information  about  the 
Maunsell  Family  and  their  alliances.  It  certainly  does  you  much  credit  to  have 
undertaken  such  a  troublesome  task." 

Rev.  F.  W.  Maunsell,  Rector  of  Symondsbury,  Dorset,  says — 

"  I  congratulate  Mr.  Maunsell  on  his  extremely  interesting  and  exhaustive  family 
history.     I  have  received  two  copies  to-day,  please  send  me  two  more  copies." 

G.  E.  CoKAYNE,  Esq.,  M.A.,  F.S.A.,  Clarenceux  King  of  Arms,  says — 

"  I  am  indeed  highly  delighted  with  the  book  ;   the  illustrations  are  beyond  praise." 

Sir  Arthur  Vic.4rs,  K.C.V.O.,  F.S.A.,  Ulster  King  of  Arms,  says — 

"  I  consider  you  deserve  the  greatest  credit  for  the  energy  you  have  displayed  in 
gathering  together  the  hitherto  disjointed  pedigree  ol  the  Maunsell  Family.  A 
collective  genealogical  account  of  this  family  m  all  its  numerous  branches  was 
much  required,  and  your  efforts  will  be  of  great  use  to  genealogists  at  large. 

"  To  bring  together  such  a  mass  of  information  and  data,  entails  enormous 
labour,  and  if  the  IVIaunsell  family  appreciate  their  ancestry,  a  second  edition  will 
surely  be  required. 

"The  printing  is  good,  and  the  illustrations  well  chosen." 

Sir  Edmund    T.  Bewlev,  LL.D,,  F. R.S.I  A.,  40  Fitzwilliani  Place,  Dublin,  says — 

"  I  have  duly  received  the  IVIaunsell  Family  History,  the  typography  and  illustrations 
of  which  do  great  credit  to  your  firm.  As  for  the  numerous  and  interesting 
pedigrees  contained  in  it,  only  those  who  have  been  engaged  in  a  similar  under- 
taking can  properly  appreciate  the  vast  labour  and  research  involved ;  and  from 
such  examination  as  1  have  been  able  to  make  of  the  pedigrees  up  to  the  present, 
Mr.  Maunsells'  work  appears  to  me  to  show  great  care  and  accuracy." 

Mrs.  H.  Maunsell,  of  7  South  Street,  Thurloe  Square,  London,  S.W.,  says— 
"  I  think  the  book  is  most  interesting  and  beautifully  got  up.     The  engravings  of  the 
different  places  make  it  quite  difierent  to  the  books  of  the  kind  that  have  been 
brought  out  before.'' 

Mrs.  R,  Eyre  Maunskll,  of  Moorlands,  Treen,  Cornwall,  says — 

"  I  have  received  the  books  safely,  and  am  very  pleased  with  them.  The  history  is 
most  interesting,  and  must  have  entailed  much  labour  on  the  compiler." 

Edward  Longueville  Mansel,  Esq.,  M.D.,  7  Clements  Inn,  London,  says — 

"  I  have  received  my  copy  of  Mr.  Maunsell's  most  interesting  book,  and  am  very  pleased 
with  it.     The  printing  and  engravings  are  excellent." 

Colonel  E.  S.  Maunsell,  New  Orleans,  says — 

"Your  very  interesting  book  to  hand,  for  which  please  accept  thanks." 

J.  LuKis  Mansell,  Esq.,  2  Somerset  Place,  Guernsey,  says — 

"  I  have  received  my  copy,  and  am  much  pleased  with  it.  As  I  am  the  oldest  member 
of  the  Guernsey  branch,  I  beg  to  thank  Mr.  Maunsell  for  the  records  of  the  family 
in  his  book." 

Lieut.-Colonel  T.  W.   Mansell  de  Gu£rin,  of  Le  Mont  Durant,  Guernsey,  says — 

"  Many  thanks  for  your  most  interesting  book  on  the  Mansell  family.  Your  work  con- 
tains an  amount  of  information  on  the  Mansell  family  which  is  new  to  me,  and  is 
a  very  valuable  record." 

H.  G.  ToLER  Hope,  Esq.,  119  Elms  Road,  Clapham  Park,  London,  S.V/.,  says — 

"  In  acknowledging  the  receipt  of,  and  in  thanking  you  for  sending  me,  a  copy  of  Mr. 
Maunsell's  History  of  his  grand  old  family,  I  wish  at  the  same  time  to  say  that  the 
manner  in  which  you  have  placed  it  before  the  world  is  most  praiseworthy.  The 
printing  is  exceptionally  good,  and  the  binding  appropriate  in  the  extreme." 

J.  T,  Warren  White,  Esq.,  of  Bedford,  says — 

"  1  cannot  tell  you  how  very  greatly  I  am  pleased  with  the  book,  and  admire  it.  There 
is  nothing  in  it  to  indicate  the  hand  of  an  amateur.  The  book  is  a  very  great 
achievement,  the  more  I  look  into  it  the  more  I  admire  it." 

Colonel  C.  H.  B.  Nurcott,  C.M.G.,  Brookfield  House,  Oakham,  says — 

"  The  book  is  well  got  up  in  every  way,  and  does  you  great  credit.  There  is  evidence 
of  much  hard  work  and  research  on  Mr.  Maunsell's  part,  the  records  bringing  to 
light  many  important  and  interesting  facts." 

W.  Mansell- MacCulloch,  Esq.,  M.D.,  F.G.S.,  Les  Touillets,  Guernsey,  says — 

"  I  must  take  this  opportunity  of  letting  you  know  how  much  I  am  interested  in  the 
undertaking  you  have  so  successfully  carried  out.  I  do  think  that  work  such  as  is 
entailed  by  the  collecting  together  of  so  many  varied  materials  is  deserving  of  all

Maunsell,  or  Mansel, 



Cbc  name,  its  Origin  and  Ortbograpliy. 

HE  name  Maunsell,  with  its  variants  Maunchell  and  Maunchenell, 

would  seem  to  have  been  derived  from,  or  may  have  given 

designation   to,    the    district    or   province   of   La    Manche,    in 

Normandy.     That   district,    in   shape,    is   like    a    badly    made 

sleeve,  and  in  the  Maunsell  Coat  of  Arms  are  three  sleeves 

or  maunches  "  mal-taillees."     The  old  French  for  sleeve  was 

mancele,  the  modern  French  being  manche. 

Some  writers  give  the  origin  as  being  from  Le  Mans  (quasi  Mans-el),  the 

chief  town  of  Maine,  but  the  forms  "  Mansois  "  and  "  Manxois  "  alone  are  found 

in  this  connection,  whilst  the  term  "Manseau"  was  used  to  designate  "a  man 

from  Maine." 

The  "  Dictionnaire  Universel  de  Trevoux,"  says,  sub  voce  Manseau :  "  Qui 
est  du  Maine,  habitant  du  Maine."  Wace,  in  his  "Chronicles  of  the  Conquest" 
(Roman  de  Rou),  says  :  "  Then  the  Duke  called  in  his  good  neighbours  the  Britons, 
Mansels,  and  Angevins,  and  those  of  Pontif  and  Boloigne,  to  come  with  him  in  his 
need."  The  family  was  evidently  numerous  and  of  widespread  influence  in  France, 
but  it  does  not  follow  that  all  who  assumed  the  surname  belonged  to  the  same  stock, 
since  in  early  times  a  man  was  known  by  his  Christian  name,  and  his  father's 
Christian  name,  together  with  the  name  of  his  property,  and,  if  a  stranger,  by 
the  name  of  the  country  or  province  from  whence  he  came.  Saint  Allais,  in  his 
"  Dictionnaire  de  la  Noblesse,"  says  :  "  Le  Maunsel — an  ancient  family,  originally 
of  Normandy." 

Near  St.  Peter's  Port,  in  the  Island  of  Guernsey,  is  a  district  called  Contree 
Manscll.  In  La  Manche  is  a  place  called  La  Manseliere,  formerly  a  prebendal 
stall  to  the  Cathedral  of  Coutances.  In  Brittany,  between  Dol  and  Baguer, 
Department  of  Ille  et  Vilaine,  is  also  a  place  so  designated,  and  some  of  the 


family  appear  to  continue  there,  for  a  Monsieur  Mancel  was  Mayor  of  Dol, 
1829-30.  Further  south,  there  is  a  town  called  Manciel,  in  Department  of 
Gers,  and  in  Charente  there  is  another  town  called  Maunsle. 

The  present  French  Branch  of  the  family  spell  the  name  Mancel,  but  some- 
times Manssel  and  Mansois. 

In  the  Battle  Abbey  Roll  some  of  the  chiefs  or  knights  of  this  family  appear 
as  Le  Siegneur  de  Mauneville,  Le  Sieg.  de  Maunceaux  de  la  Maunse,  and 
Maunchenelle.  The  Anglo-Norman  spelling  was  undoubtedly  with  the  u  and  11, 
oi  which  most  of  the  copies  of  the  Battle  Abbey  Roll,  Matthew  Paris,  Vincent, 
and  other  writers,  give  proof.  In  all  the  Papal  Bulls,  and  other  public  docu- 
ments, addressed  to  Jolm  Maunsell,  temp.  Hen.  III.,  the  surname  is  invariably 
so  spelt.  About  this  period  the  name  was  sometimes  written  with  t,  or  at  least 
the  written  form  of  s  was  such  as  to  be  easily  mistaken  for  that  letter,  thus 
Robert  Maunsell  who  founded  the  Abbey  of  Bileagh,  near  Maiden,  Essex,  in 
1 1 80,  and  his  son,  Robert,  who  was  sheriff  of  Essex  2nd  Hen.  III.,  and  of 
Leicester  31  Hen.  III.,  in  the  Close  Rolls  have  the  name  written  Mauntell, 
whilst  in  the  Plea  Rolls  and  " Inquisitiones  Post  Mortem"  it  is  spelt  Maunsell. 
Again,  the  name  of  Walter  Maunsell,  who  held  the  Manor  of  Missenden,  Co. 
Bucks,  in  the  beginning  of  the  reign  of  Hen.  III.  has  sometimes  been  written 
with  a  t,  but  in  the  "Inquisitiones  Post  Mortem,"  Charter  Rolls,  Parhamentary 
Writs,  etc.,  it  is  invariably  spelt  with  s ;  but  in  the  Close  Rolls  it  is  once  written 

Until  about  the  fifteenth  century  the  seal  attached  to  any  document  acted 
as  the  signature  of  later  times,  and  it  is  therefore  difficult  to  authenticate  the 
earlier  writings.  A  seal,  presumably  that  of  John  Maunsell,  temp.  Hen.  III., 
was  found  under  the  foundation  of  London  Bridge,  but  the  engraving  on  it  gives 
the  name  as  Maunsel,  whilst  another  seal  found  in  1849,  near  the  Reculvers, 

when  excavating  for  the  Dover  Railway,  gives  the  name  "Thome  Maunsell." 
This  latter  seal  is  said  to  be  of  the  period  Henry  VI.  In  1450,  Thomas  Maunsell 
was  Receiver-General  to  the  Duke  of  Somerset,  the  King's  Lieutenant-General 
in  France,  and  "  had  money  to  pay  the  wages  of  divers  men  at  arms  and  archers 


proceeding  to  Normandy  for  defence  of  those  parts."  The  name  continued  to 
be  thus  sealed  or  written  by  the  family  until  the  latter  end  of  the  fifteenth 
century,  when  Philip  Maunsell  is  stated  to  have  omitted  the  u,  probably  as  not 
being  pronounced,  as  we  see  in  so  many  words  of  French  origin.  His  descend- 
ants— Sir  Rhys  Mansell,  who  died  in  April,  1559,  rarely  used  the  u,  but  retained 
the  11,  sometimes  writing  the  name  Manysell  and  Manxell.  Richard  Maunsell 
of  Claicheley,  Newport-Pagnell,  also  died  in  1559,  and  the  entry  of  his  burial 
in  the  church  there  appears  as  Mansell.  In  the  Visitations  of  the  period  the 
name  of  the  latter's  grandson,  John,  appears  in  the  same  form ;  but  in  the  tablet 
erected  to  his  memory  in  the  chancel  arch  of  Bromley  Church,  1625,  it  is  spelt 
Maunsell.  The  descendants  of  this  John's  brother,  Thomas,  who  settled  in 
Ireland,  maintain  the  latter  original  spelling,  although  Thomas  Maunsell,  of 
Mocollop  Castle,  in  1661,  signed  an  admn.  bond  without  the  u;  yet  his  own 
will,  in  1687,  is  signed  with  that  letter.  Again,  in  1713,  two  brothers  in  signing 
a  marriage  licence  bond,  one  wrote  the  name  in  the  former  fashion  and  the  other 
in  the  latter.  Sir  Robert  Mansell,  Vice-Admiral  of  England,  temp.  Queen 
Elizabeth  and  James  I.,  sometimes,  in  early  life,  spelt  his  name  as  Mansfeeld. 
The  earliest  funeral  certificate  of  the  family  in  the  College  of  Arms  is  that  of 
Sir  Thomas  Mansell,  the  first  baronet,  who  died  163 1,  and  is  signed  by  his 
son,  Sir  Lewis  Mansell.  The  latter  died  1638,  and  his  funeral  certificate  is 
signed  by  his  widow,  Lady  Elizabeth  Mansell.  No  other  alteration  occurred 
in  the  spelling  of  the  name  until  the  reign  of  Queen  Anne,  when  Sir  Thos. 
Mansell,  Bart.,  previous  to  his  elevation  to  the  peerage,  omitted  the  final  1,  and 
some  of  the  Carmarthenshire  branches,  and  that  of  Cosgrove  Hall,  Northants, 
a  Junior  branch  of  the  Maunsells  of  Chicheley,  have  followed  Iris  example.  An 
instance  of  the  fonn  Maunchell  is  to  be  found  in  the  will  of  Rev.  Thomas 
Maunchell,  Rector  of  Overe,  Co.  Cambridge,  proved  1467.

OATS  OF  ARMS,  or  Armorial  bearings,  are  of  very  remote 
origin.  Ttiey  were  composed  of  tinctures  and  figures  borne 
on  a  shield  and  granted  by  Sovereigns  and  others  to  dis- 
tinguish persons,  and  families,  or  states,  and  were  usually 
conferred  for  exceptional  valor,  or  other  such  signal  service. 
Hereditary  arms  began  to  be  displayed  in  this  country 
only  towards  the  middle  of  the  twelfth  century.  The 
feudal  system,  the  times  of  chivalry,  and  the  Crusades  appear  to  have  been 
principally  the  cause  and  the  period  of  their  being  adopted  throughout  Europe, 
whilst  the  privilege  of  bearing  them  was  jealously  guarded.  The  inferior 
classes  of  society  were  totally  excluded  from  such  characteristics  of  dignity.  At 
tournaments  no  one  could  enter  the  lists  without  producing  his  armorial  bearings, 
and  proving  his  gentility  by  several  descents,  and  no  branch  of  a  family  could 
assume  the  arms  of  its  chief,  without  displaying  suitable  differences. 

Arms  once  established  in  a  family,  may  be  borne  by  all  the  members  of  it, 
with  proper  distinctions,  such  as  the  label,  mullet,  etc.  A  change  in  the  tincture 
is  also  another  mark  of  cadency,  and  may  in  some  degree  account  for  the  many 
different  ways  in  which  Maunsell  arms  are  found  emblazoned.  The  Maunsells 
of  Gloucestershire  bore  Gules,  a  fesse,  argent;  and,  as  early  as  the  beginning 
of  the  fifteenth  century  we  find  it  thus  displayed,  with  a  label  of  the  second,  for 
difference,  by  Sir  Wm.  Maunsell  of  that  county,  at  the  battle  of  Agincourt,  and 
the  siege  of  Rouen  under  Henry  V.  Sir  Robert  Mansell,  temp.  Queen  Elizabeth, 
and  some  other  branches,  bore — Or,  three  Maunches  Sable,  on  a  chief,  gules, 
a  lion  passant,  gardant  of  the  field.  The  chief  and  its  charge  were  granted 
by  the  Earl  of  Essex,  in  consequence  of  the  gallant  conduct  displayed,  by  Sir 
Robert  at  the  siege  of  Cadiz  in  1596,  when  he  also  knighted  him.  The  Maunsells 
of  Ballybrood  transpose  the  arms,  and  bear — Sa, ;  a  chevron  between  three 
Maunches,  argent.  Mansells  of  Dorsetshire — Sa,  a  chevron  between  three 
Mullets,  argent.  Others  bore — Sable,  a  chevron  between  three  mullets  pierced, 
or.  Again — Or,  on  a  fesse,  dansette  gules,  three  lions  rampant,  argent.  Also — 
Sable,  a  chevron  between  three  Maunches,  argent.  Thomas  Mansell,  of  Wood 
Street,  London,  1633-4,  bore — Or,  on  a  fesse,  indented,  gules,  three  lions 
rampant,  argent ;  and  John  Maunsell,  of  Tirlington,  Leicestershire,  temp.  Ed.  II., 
bore — Gules,  a  fesse,  argent,  a  label,  or.  The  Maunsells  of  Somersetshire,  in 
1573,   bore — Gules,    a   fesse   or,  between   three   jambes,    argent.     Some   of    Uie 


Mansells  of  France,  now  spelt  Mancel,  bore, — Vert,  three  mullets,  argent,  2  and 
r,  within  a  border,  sable.  Jean  le  Mancel,  lord  of  Sequeville,  bore — Sa,  a  fesse, 
or,  between  six  escalops,  or,  3  and  3.  Mansel,  lord  of  La  Laude,  near  Caen, 
bore  arms  exactly  similar  to  the  main  branch  in  England,  viz.,  "d'argent,  au 
chevron  de  sable,  accompagne  de  trois  manches,  mal-taillees,  du  meme."  Others 
bore — Azure,  Seme  of  Mullets,  or,  three  bunches  of  grapes,  or,  2  and  i.  Whilst 
in-Narburgh  Church,  Norfolk,  the  arms  quartered  for  Maunsell  were — Azure, 
Seme  of  Cross  Crosslets,  and  three  Crescents  argent.  In  the  samie  church  they 
also  appeared  quartered  in  the  Sixth  in  the  Spelman  Arms  (see  page  9). 

The  original  arms  of  Maunsell  are — Argent,  a  chevron,  between  three 
Maunches,  sable.  Their  composition,  according  to  the  laws  of  heraldry,  is  far 
from  being  insignificant,  for  it  is  an  acknowledged  rule,  that  armorial  bearings 
which  are  the  simplest  and  least  diversified,  are  the  most  noble  and  ancient. 
A  field  argent,  as  representing  the  light,  is  the  most  distinguished ;  and  the 
chevron  is  the  seventh  honorable  ordinary,  the  principal  charges  in  heraldry,  and 
represents  two  rafters,  denoting  an  established  house.  It  was  given  to  those 
who  had  accomplished  any  great  undertaking,  or  performed  some  signal  service. 
The  Maunche  represents  an  ecclesiastic's  sleeve,  and  is  perhaps  a  rebus  on  the 
rame,  being  "  Maunchelle,"  a  little  sleeve.  The  Maunche  is  of  the  greatest 
antiquity,  and  is  to  be  found  only  in  the  arms  of  those  who  have  descended  from 
a  long  line  of  ancestry.  Only  two  families  in  this  country,  besides  the  Maunsells, 
bear  the  Maunche  Sable,  namely,  Hastings  and  Coniers.  The  Maunche  in 
different  other  colours  is  displayed  by  the  families  of  De  la  Mare,  Fleming, 
Staverton,  PagneJl,  Framville,  Frevell,  Wharton,  Hayford,  Colthorpe,  Thirkell, 
Crosby,  Mohun,  Manly,  Bouler,  Acklam,  Norton,  Acham,  and  Bordsay.  By  the 
seal  of  John  Maunsell,  temp.  Hen.  III.,  it  appears  that  he  bore — Ermine,  on  a 
cross,  five  lions  passant  gardant,  but  these  may  have  had  reference  tj  liis  civil, 
courtly,  or  ecclesiastical  appointments. 


Coats  of  Arms  with  Supporters  is  the  prerogative  of  the  "  Nobiles  Majores," 
and  was  granted  to  the  five  gradations  by  Henry  VIII.  Knights  of  the  several 
orders  also  bear  them,  as  do  also  Nova  Scotia  Baronets,  although  those  of 
England  and  Ireland  are  not  entitled  to  that  privilege.  Several  private  families 
display  supporters,  being  entitled  to  do  so  by  the  express  permission  of  the 

Supporters,  which  cannot  with  propriety  be  changed  or  alienated,  are 
generally  taken  from  such  things  as  are  borne  on  the  shield  ;  they  have  also 
been  adopted,  or  first  granted,  on  account  of  some  particular  action. 

The  Supporters  used  by  the  Lords  Mansel — A  Hawk  and  Griffin,  were  first 
assumed  by  Sir  Thomas  Mansell,  Bart,  on  his  elevation  to  the  House  of  Lords, 
temp.  Queen  Anne,  and  were  taken  from  his  crest. 

The  Supportrrs  of  the  Mansells  of  France  are  two  Parrots.

"  Quod  Vult  Valde  Vult."  As  to  its  origin,  it  appears  probable  that  John 
Maunsell,  when  he  was  crossed  for  the  Holy  Land,  temp.  Henry  III.,  followed 
the  fashion  of  the  day  and  took  a  motto,  and  that  the  King,  hearing  of  his 
favourite  minister's  intention  of  joining  the  Crusade,  may  have  appropriately 
repeated  the  words  Julius  Caesar  made  use  of  when  speaking  to  Brutus,  "  Nescio 
quod  vult ;  sed  quicquid  vult,  valde  vult,"  and  thus  have  given  rise  to  the 
Maunsell  motto.  It  may  also  be  in  allusion  to  the  crest.  The  Lords  Mansel 
of  Margam  bore  another  motto,  namely,  "  Honorantes  me  Honorabo,"  which 
is  also  borne  by  the  Irish  and  Northamptonshire  branches  of  the  family. 

At  tournaments  Sir  Jenkin  Mansell  used  the  motto,  "Perit  sine  adversario

Wm.  le  Mordaunt,  who  then  impaled  the  wood  of  Maunsell  Grove

and  had  a  daughter,  who  got  from  him  the  lands  of  Strood, 
and  married  Sir  John  Spelman,  Knt.,  of  Norfolk.  In  Narburgh

Margery,  daughter  of  the  said  Thomas,  late  the  wife  of  Wm. 
Payne,  held  it  46  years." 

Sir  Wm.  Maunsell  also  had  a  son,  viz : 
William,  born  1295,  who  held  Lypiate  Manor  and  lands  in 
Bisley,  Co.  Glos.,  and  to  whom  Robert  de  Eton  yielded

Danvers,  v/as  assessed  13  s.  4d.  on  the  knighting  of 
Edward  of  Woodstock,  for  a  third  part  of  a  knight's  fee 
in  Oddeston  and  Sancketon,  parcel  of  the  fee  of  John

and  is  described  by  Anquitel  in  his  "History  of 
France"  as  having  lost  that  fortress  by  not  being 
able  to  read.  The  mayor  of  the  town,  by  a  forged 
despatch,  induced  Maunsell  to  attend  a  review  out- 
side the  walls  when,  by  a  preconcerted  movement, 
the  French  troops  took  possession  of  the  place.  He 
married  the  dau.  of  Sir  John  Atthyle,  of  Geystwick, 
Co.  Norfolk,  and  died  1396.  In  Narburgh  Church 
there  is  a  window,  or  memorial,  evidently  to  him,  dis- 
playing the  following  arms — "Azure  Seme  of  Cross 
Crosslets  and  three  Crescents  Argent." — See  "Pa- 
trician," vol.  i.  (Burke). 

Walter  Maunsell,  the  eldest  son,  held  the  sergeanty  of  Little  Missenden 
as  Napkin  Bearer  to  the  King,  and  owned  tlie  manors  and  lands  of  Soulbury, 
Bucks. ;  Ingepenne,  Berks. ;  and  lands  in  Staffordshire  by  the  service  of 
marshalling  in  the  house  of  the  King.  He  held  also  one  knight's  fee  of 
Roger  de  Somery  of  the  honour  of  Dudley,^')  and  one  fee  of  the  honour  of 
the  Earl  and  fee  of  tlie  Marshal  in  Buddeley,  Co.  Wilts,  and,  with  Nicholas 
de  Ingepenne  and  the  Abbot  of  Tyckford,  held  two  fees  of  the  fee  of  Roger 
de  Somery.  Also  he  held  two  fees  in  Hartwell,  Co.  Northants,  of  the  fee 
of  Wm.  de  Say  of  the  honour  of  Dover,  half  a  hide  of  land  of  the  fee  of

halter  of  the  price  of  one  penny,  and  to  pay  toll  for  forty  days."     His  lands 
were  taken  from  him  1216,  but  were  restored  second  of  Henry  HI. 

He  married  Hawisia,  daughter  of  John  de  Somerie  by  Hawisia,  daughter 
of  Gervaise  Pagnell,  Baron  of  Dudley  (this  latter  Hawisia  married,  secondly, 
Roger  de  Berkeley,  of  Berkeley  Castle,  Co.  Gloucester),  by  Hawisia,  dau. 
of  Robert  de  Ferrers,  Earl  of  Derby,  by  Hawisia,  daughter  of  Andre  de 
Vitre,  by  Agnes,  half-sister  of  the  Conqueror.  For  the  health  of  the  soul 
of  his  cousin,  and  wife's  uncle,  Robert  Pagnell,  last  of  the  two  sons  of 
Gervaise  Pagnell,  he  bestowed  some  of  tlie  lands  of  Ingepenne  on  the 
Priory  of  Tickford,  which  gift  his  son,  John,  subsequently  confirmed  in  his 
court  at  Soulbury,  his  brothers  Philip,  Henry,  Peter,  and  Robert  being 
witnesses  to  the  deed. 

Walter  died  about   1250,  for  in  the  following  year  Hawisia  held  the 
lands  of  Ingepenne  in  dower.     Of  his  issue,  viz. : 
I.  John,  of  whom  afterwards, 
II.  Philip,  d.  s.  p. 

III.  Henry,  held  the  presentation  to  benefice  of  Soulbury,  1276. 

IV.  Peter,  became  a  monk  at  Tyckford.

VI.  Michael,  in  1279,  assigned  to  Walter  de  Agmondeshem  certain  lands  in 
Agmondeshem,  portion  of  the  lands  his  father  held  by  sergeanty  of

She  was  ancestor  of  Peter  de  la  Mare  who,  in  1376,  as  Speal-:er  of  "the 
good  Parliament,"  was  thrown  into  prison  by  John  of  Gaunt  for  refusing 
to  vote  supplies.  This  Peter  had  a  sister  Joan  who  married  Simon  de 
Brockburn,  who  died  15  Ric.  II.,  leaving  a  daughter,  Margaret,  who 
married  Sir  Wm.  Seymour,  ancestor  of  the  Dukes  of  Somerset. 

John  Maunsell  appears  from  early  youth  to  have  been  brought  up  at  court, 
for  in  a  letter  written  by  King  Henry  III.  to  the  College  of  Cardinals,  dated 
1st  January,  1262,  of  Maunsell  he  says : — "Sub  alis  nostris  educatus  cujus 
ingenium  mores  et  marita  ab  adolescentia  sua  probarimus,"  etc. 

He  married  Joan,  only  daughter  and  heir  of  Simon  Beauchamp,  Baron 
of  Bedford,  Hereditary  Almoner  to  the  King,  by  Isabella,  daughter  of  Hugh 
Wake,  Lord  of  Chesterfield,  and  sister  of  Baldwin,  Lord  Wake  (who  was 
also  married  to  Simon's  sister,  Ella),  and  granddaughter  of  Wm.  Beauchamp,

of  Salisbury.  In  1226  he  was  appointed  Constable  of  Dover  and  Warden 
of  the  Cinque  Ports,  and,  in  addition  to  the  family  estates  which  he  in- 
herited in  Beds.,  Bucks.,  Leic,  etc.,  and  the  estates  in  right  of  his  wife,  of 
which  he  had  free  warren  of  the  King,  he  also,  between  years  1241  and 
1 25 1,  got  grants  of  the  following  manors  and  lands,  viz. — Hyldesle,  Co. 
Berks. ;  Renham  and  Berton,  Co.  Suffolk ;  Wepeham  and  Sedgwick,  Co. 
Sussex  ;  Wygan,  Co.  Lancaster  (for  which  town  he  got  a  charter)  ;  Merston,

and  fairs ;  Tidderleigh,  Co.  Ebor  ;  Messeberg  and  Polres,  and  Bilsington,

of  the  heirs  of  Hugh,  Earl  of  Arundel,  he  (Roger)  having  married  Nicholia, 
one  of  the  four  daughters  and  co-heirs  of  said  Hugh,  Earl  of  Arundel,  and 
in  right  of  his  wife  had  a  third  part  of  the  manor  of  Bilsington.  At  Bilsing- 
ton John  Maunsell  founded  a  priory  for  the  King  and  Queen,  valued  at 
;^8  IS.  6d.  yearly,  and  endowed  it  with  lands  Polres,  Gozehale,  and  Ecche, 
besides  the  manor  of  Belgar,  near  Sid.  A  small  alien  house  was  also 
established  by  him  at  Romney  in  1257.  Bilsington  was  surrendered  28 
Feb.,  1535,  its  revenues  not  amomiting  to  £200  p.  a.,  and  in  the  36  Plenry 
VIII.  it  was  given  with  others  to  Thomas  Cranmer,  Archbishop  of  Canter- 
bury, and  still  forms  portion  of  that  see.  It  had  previously  been  rented  to 
Sir  Anthony  St.  Leger,  Knt.,  for  50  years,  at  £70  per  annum.  A  farm- 
house, formed  from  the  ruins  of  the  Priory,  is  now  the  only  remains  of  the 

In  Shropshire,  Maunsell  held  the  town  of  Lega  Cambrey  in  ward  of 
the  fee  of  Robert  Thocket ;  he  had  wardship  of  the  son  and  heir  of  Edmund 
de  Kemesek,  for  which  he  paid  300  marks  ;  of  the  heir  of  Alardi  le  Fleming, 
for  which  he  paid  500  marks  ;  and  of  Henry,  son  and  heir  of  Mathew  Hoese, 
for  which  he  paid  600  marks ;  also  of  William  de  Buri,  of  Alppintorn, 
Shropshire,  who,  being  under  age,  the  King  "gave  the  wardship  to  John 
Maunsell,  and  he  holds  2  parts,  9  perches."  He  was  also  appointed  guardian 
to  Felicia,  daughter  of  Humphry  de  Millers,  whom  he  married  as  second 
wife.  She  survived  him,  for,  in  1263,  as  widow  of  John  Maunsell,  she  held 
in  dower  the  lands  of  Rossington,  Co.  Derby. 

In  1243  he  was  appointed  Chancellor  of  London,  and  resigned  that 
post  in  1259.  He  was,  in  1255,  appointed  Provost  of  Beverley  and 
Treasurer  of  York,  and,  in  1258,  Member  of  Privy  Council,  Lord  Justiciar 
of  England,  and  Constable  of  the  Tower,  which  latter  was  considered  the 
most  honorable  appointment  in  the  gift  of  the  King.  In  1249  he  had  royal 
permission  to  embattle  his  house  at  Sedgwyck,  and  had  free  warren  in  all  his 
demesnes  in  counties  Surrey,  York,  Berks.,  Herts.,  Sussex,  etc.,  and  all 
lines  of  the  sergeanty  of  Bilsington.  In  1250  he,  with  the  King  and  several 
nobles,  was  crossed  to  go  to  Jerusalem,   and  in    125 1    he  compelled  the 



If  ^ 



monastery  at  Tewkesbury  to  pay  him  tithes  of  Kingeston  Manor.  As  a 
chief  member  of  the  Council,  he  and  Richard  de  Clare,  Earl  of  Gloucester, 
were  the  only  parties  freely  admitted  to  the  King's  presence  during  Prince 
Edward's  disobedience.  In  1256  he  and  Gloucester  had  full  power  to  treat 
with  the  foreign  ambassadors  re  Richard,  Duke  of  Cornwall,  being  elected 
King  of  the  Romans;  and  in  1259  he  and  the  Earls  of  Gloucester  and 
Leicester  were  sent  as  ambassadors  to  France  to  treat  for  the  marriage  of 
Prince  Edward  and  Beatrice,  daughter  of  the  King  of  France.  He  was 
employed  as  ambassador  to  the  Pope,  to  the  King  of  Scots,  and  to  the 
King  of  Spain.  The  charter,  with  its  golden  seal,  which  he  brc>ught  back 
from  Spain,  is  still  amongst  the  archives  at  Westminster. 

He  was  one  of  the  Royal  Representatives  at  Oxford  Parliament,  and 
Member  of  the  Council  of  15,  having  been  previously  one  of  the  two  chosen 
by  the  Barons  from  the  Royal  Electors,  the  Earl  of  Warwick  being  the 
other.  In  a  Bull  from  Pope  Alexander  IV.  advising  the  King  to  pay  the 
debts  in  re  the  affair  Sicily,  and  addressed  to  John  Maunsell,  dated  June 
3rd,  1258,  he  says: — "Alexander,  Bishop,  Servant  of  the  Servants  of  God, 
to  his  beloved  son,  John  Mavnsell,  Treasurer  of  York,  greeting  and  Apos- 
tolic benediction";  and  in  a  letter  from  Henry  III.  to  Pope  Alexander,  he 
says — "John  Maunsell  is  quite  innocent  of  the  beating  of  a  proctor  at  York." 
In  1260  arose  a  violent  dispute  between  his  Majesty  the  King  and  the 
English  Barons,  because,  it  was  said,  acting  on  advice  of  John  Maunsell, 
Robert  Walerand,  Peter  de  Sauvage,  and  others,  he  attempted  to  infringe 
the  statutes  and  provisions  which  had  been  laid  down  in  the  general 
Parliament  at  Oxford.  In  1261  an  agreement  was  arrived  at,  the  matter 
in  dispute  being  referred,  on  the  King's  part,  to  the  Bishop  of  Salisbury, 
the  Bishop  of  Hereford,  and  John  Maunsell,  and  on  the  Barons'  side  to 
Robert  de  Marisco,  Dean  of  Lincoln,  Roger  Bigod,  Count,  and  Peter  de 
Mumford ;  and  in  case  of  disagreement,  Richard,  King  of  the  Romans,  to 
act  as  umpire.  Maunsell  held  the  advowson  of  seventy  (some  authorities  say 
seven  hundred)  parishes,  which  brought  him  a  revenue  of  over  18,000  marks 
per  an.  "He  feasted  at  his  hcuse,  Tole  Hill  Field,  at  one  time,  two  kings, 
two  queens,  with  their  dependances,  700  messe  of  meate  scarce  serving  for 
the  first  dinner."  "With  his  owne  hands  in  battle  betwixt  the  English 
and  the  French  near  to  Tailborge,  in  France,  he  took  prisoner  one  Peter 
Orige,  a  gentleman  of  eminent  place  and  qualitie."  About  1263,  he  was 
named  one  of  the  executors  of  the  will  of  Henry  III.,  and,  as  his  name  does 
not  again  appear  in  state  affairs,  it  is  thought  that  he  died  in  that  year ; 
and  as  on  7th  February,  12O4-5,  Johannes  de  Chishull,  Archdeacon  of 
London,  was  appointed  to  the  Provostship  of  Beverley,  and  as  King  Henry 
was  forced  to  confer  on  Alanwick  de  Montfort  the  Treasurership  of  York, 
it  being  then  in  custody  of  Simon  Montfort,  Earl  of  Leicester,  as  'tis 
expressed,  void  by  Maunsell's  death,  and,  as  already  stated,  his  widow. 
Felicia,  held  the  lands  of  Rossington  in  dower  in   1263,  it  follows  that  he 


must  have  died  in  that  year.  He  was  buried  at  York  Minster,  and  King 
Henry  "  granted  lands  to  that  church  that  prayers  and  masses  might  be  said 
there  annually  for  the  repose  of  the  soul  of  John  Maunsell."  Soon  after, 
John  de  Aucer  and  James  de  Cimiterio  took  violent  possession  of  the  grant 
and  detained  it,  whereupon  the  monks  brought  action  for  its  recovery  in 
1274,  alleging  "they  cannot  perform  the  anniversary,  to  the  peril  of  the 
soul  of  the  deceased,  and  of  their  own  souls,"  whereupon  King  Edward 
confirmed  the  grant,  and  the  memorial  service  was  continued  in  the  church 
of  St.  Peter's,  York,  until  the  Reformation.  Matthew  Paris,  and  some 
other  writers,  assert  that  Maunsell  died  abroad,  in  1268,  "poor,  wretched 
and  miserable " ;  but  from  the  above  this  cannot  be  true,  as  also  from  the 
fact  that,  in  addition  to  estates  in  England,  he  left  large  properties  in 
Ireland,  for  by  deed  dated  i6th  Dec,  1266,  "Sir  RolSert  de  Twenge,  Knt., 
and  Simon  of  Stourbridge,  and  the  other  executors  of  his  will,  constituted 
Wm.  de  Bakapuz  as  their  proctor  in  all  matters  throughout  Ireland  relating 
to  said  will."  Immediately  after  his  death,  in  1263,  most  of  his  lands  were 
seized  by  the  Earl  of  Leicester  and  given  to  his  son,  Simon  de  Montfort,  jun., 
but  after  the  battle  of  Eveshiim,  in  which  Leicester  and  his  son  were  slain, 
the  property  was  restored  to  the  Maunsell  family.  In  1264  his  two  eldest 
sons,  and  his  grandson,  Henry  Hoese,  were  in  open  hostility  to  the  King. 
In  1266  the  manor  of  Hyldesle  was  ceded  to  Robert  de  Wytefeud,  and  in 
1268  the  manors  of  Wepeham  and  Sedgwyck,  Co.  Sussex,  and  of  Beimund, 
Co.  Essex,  were  surrendered  to  the  King,  who  then  granted  them  to  Peter 
de  Chaventree  for  his  homage  and  service. 

In  addition  to  male  issue,  he  appears  to  have  had  a  daughter  married 
to  —  Gyrlyngton,  of  Gyrlington  Hall,  Yorks,  for,  on  the  3rd  Edwd.  I., 
Gunilda,  who  was  wife  of  Mansell  de  Girlington,  claimed  against  John 
Maunsell,  son  of  the  abovenamed  John,  custodian  of  the  lands,  and  heir  of 
Master  Mansell  de  Girlington,  and  against  John  fil  Manselli  de  Girlington, 
against  Richard  Maunsell,  against  Felicia  Maunsell,  John  Emon,  and  Richd. 
de  Erndesby,  certain  lands  in  Girlington  as  her  dower.  He  also  had  male 
issue  by  his  first  wife,  viz : 

I.  Thomas,  of  whom  afterwards. 

II.  John,  described  in  the  Rotulorum  Chart,  30  Henry  III.,  as  John  Maun- 
sell, jun.,  got  from  the  King  the  advowson  of  Lugwardine  church,  and 
churches  or  chapels  in  Urcliingfeld,  Co.  Hereford.  In  Irish  "Close 
Rolls"  he  is  described  as  brother  of  Walter,  and  acknowledges  himself 
indebted  to  William,  Archbishop  of  Cashel,  in  ;^300. 

III.  Henry,  was  killed  at  Northampton,  in  1264,  whilst  defending  the 
citadel  for  the  Barons  against  the  royal  forces.  He  does  not  appear  to 
have  been  married. 

IV.  Walter,  was  entrusted  witli  the  King's  letters  to  the  Archbishop  of 



Cashel.  On  23  January,  125 1,  he  got  the  gift  of  the  Capital  Serjeancy 
of  Munster,  and  on  ist  March  of  that  year,  as  per  commission  signed 
by  John  Mamisell,  he  was  appointed  Governor  of  the  Castle  of 
Occonath  in  that  district.  The  commission  runs  as  follows  :  — "  Mandate 
to  John  Fitzgeoffrey,  Justiciar  of  Ireland,  that,  taking  with  him  good 
and  lawful  men,  he  viewe  the  defects  of  the  King's  Castle  of  Occonath, 
and  cause  them  to  be  thoroughly  repaired,  and  that  he  cause  Walter 
Maunsell,  to  whom  the  King  has  committed  its  custody,  to  have  what 
belongs  to  him  for  that  custody.  The  King  will  cause  the  expenses 
to  be  allowed  to  the  Judiciary."  Occonath  was  situate  in  that  district 
portion  of  which  is  now  known  as  Coonagh,  and  then  comprised  the 
counties  Limerick  and  Tipperary,  etc.  He  also  held  the  castle  of 
Balygady.  On  Maunsell's  death,  in  13 18,  the  sergeancy  of  Munster 
was  given  to  Robert  Bagod,  and  the  castle  of  Balygady  to  Maurice  de 
Rupeforte,  "  to  hold  the  same  till  the  lawful  age  of  Walter's  heir."  He 
had  issue,  viz. : 

(i)  Robert,  who  was  sheriff  of  Tipperary,  1304,  and  died  before  his 
father,  leaving  a  son,  John,  who,  in  1356,  was  co-sheriff  of  the 
county  of  the  Cross  of  Tipperary  with  John  Everh^rd.  In  the 
baronies  of  EUiogurty  and  Iffa  and  Offa,  in  that  county,  is  a  town- 
land  called  Maunselltown. 

(2)  Philip,    sold  lands   at   Thomastown,   Co.    Kilkenny,    in    1307,    to 

Gilbert  de  Clare,  and  then  held  by  Joan,  Countess  of  Gloucester. 

(3)  John. 

(4)  Thomas. 

V.  Galfridus,  held  lands  Grillington,  Co.  Yorks,  and  gave  all  his  lands 

in  Ingepenne,  Berks,  to  Tichfield  or  Tickford  Priory,  which  lands  are 
described  as  having  been  formerly  held  by  John  Maunsell,  lord  of  the 
manor.     He  became  a  monk  at  Tickford.    See  Appendix,  Nos,  2  and  3. 

VI.  Richard,  in  1253,  held  jointly  with  his  brother,  Thomas,  the  manor, 
markets  and  fairs,  and  free  warren  in  Budeford  or  Bridforth,  Co.  Yorks, 
and,  in  1262,  the  King  granted  him  a  licence  to  hunt  in  that  county. 
He  also  held  lands  of  Comb  Quynton,  Co.  Cumberland.  He  also  held 
Hundreds  in  Hovedene,  Co.  Yorks,  and  his  bailiff,  John  Skelton, 
vacated  a  certain  ward  to  Richard  the  Forester.  He  had  issue,  viz  1 
(i)  John,  of  Brudeford,  who  had  action  against  Wm.  de  Karliolo  in 

1307,  and  was  declared  owner  of  the  property  at  Comb  Quynton. 
He  married  Isabella,  dau.  and  co-heir  of  Richard  de  Sto  Dyonysio. 
of  Hempstead,  Co.  Norfolk,  and  in  13 12  had  licence  to  enfeoff 
half  the  manor  of  Hempstead  with  the  moiety  of  the  church  of 
Norfolk ;  and  had  also  licence  of  the  King  to  grant  Henry  Maun- 


sell  and  Beatrice,  his  wife,  one  moiety  of  the  manor  of  Hempstead, 
by  Irnham,  and  the  advovvson  of  a  moiety  of  its  church,  held  in 
chief,  and  the  reversion  of  the  other  moiety,  which  Roger  de 
Thorpe,  of  Wystonwe,  and  Joan,  his  wife,  held  for  their  lives. 
He  had  issue,  viz. : 

(A)  Henry,  referred  to  above,  married  Beatrix,  daughter  of  Thos. 
de  Berton,  of  Rondham,  Co.  Norfolk,  and  had  issue: 

(a)  John,  who  paid  20s.  for  licence  to  obtain  the  advowson 

of  Hempstead  in  1358,  and  died  unmarried  in  1362. 

(b)  Walter,  died  unmarried  in  1365. 

(c)  Alicia,  married  and  had  a  daughter,   Beatrix,   aged  30 

in  1365. 

(d)  Mariota,  married  and  had  a  daughter,  Rosa,  aged  18 
in  1365.  Rosa  married  Robert  Robel,  for,  in  1365,  the 
King  commanded  the  sheriff  of  Norfolk  "to  get  security 
from  Beatrix,  dau.  of  Alicia  Maunsell — the  one,  Robert 
Robel,  and  Rosa,  his  wife,  daughter  of  Meriot  Maunsell, 
the  other — to  make  lawful  partition  of  the  moiety  of  the 
manor  of  Hempstead,  with  its  appurtenances,  which  is 
held  of  the  King  in  chief  by  military  service." 

(2)  Walter,  was  of  Hoton,  Co.  Cumberland,  and  had  a  son,  viz. : 

(a)  Patrick,  aged  21  in  1296,  in  which  year  the  King  accepted 
his  fidelity  for  all  the  lands  and  tenements  which  his  father 
held  in  chief  of  the  King. 

(3)  Adam,  had  right  of  the  gift  of  the  Priory  of  St.  Swithin,  Winchester, 

which,  on  his  demise  in  1280,  reverted  to  the  King,  and  which  the 
King  then  granted  for  life  to  Aunger  de  Chancovy. 

Thomas  Maunsell,  in  1225,  held  joinly  with  Alexander  D'Oville,  from  the 
Earl  of  Arundel,  the  lands  of  Tackele,  Co.  Oxon  ;  he  also  held  lands  in 
Bucks  and  Berks,  the  manor  of  Reddeston,  and  half  a  fee  in  Farendun, 
Northants,  under  the  Earl  of  Winchester,  as  well  as  the  lands  in  Yorks  held 
jointly  with  his  brother,  Richard. 

He  was  Escheator  of  Bucks,  1251,  and  Jurator  in  Essex  in  1255.  In 
1250  he  was  sent  on  a  mission  to  Rome  re  the  Crusades.  He  fought  during 
the  Barons'  wars,  and,  with  Simon  de  Montfort,  jun.,  Baldwin  le  Wake,  and 
several  others,  was  wounded  and  taken  prisoner  at  Northampton,  1264. 
He  was  created  a  Knight  Banneret  by  the  Earl  of  Leicester,  and  was 
appointed  one  of  the  fifteen  standard  bearers  in  the  Barons'  army  After 
the  above  battle  he  was  thrown  into  prison  and  attainted  in  Parliament, 
but  his  powerful  influence  soon  obtained  his  freedom  and  a  repeal  of  the 
attainder  on  payment  of  a  small  fine.     Subsequently  he   appears  to  have 




''mm     ^ 
"^  i&  ^^     ^"^ 




been  on  intimate  terms  with  King  Edward.  He  also  held  lands  in  Pape- 
worth  Hundred,  Co.  Kent,  of  Thomas  de  Ellesworth  by  service  of  two  suits 
of  court  per  annum,  where  his  father  had  held  lands  at  id.  per  year. 

He  married,  first,  Hana,  dau.  of  Sir  Henry  Grey,  Knt.,  son  of  John 
Grey,  Justice  of  Chester,  progenitor  of  Lords  Grey  of  Wilton  and  Ruthyn, 
and  who  gave  to  the  canons  of  Nutley,  Bucks,  a  cottage  in  Co.  Norfolk  to 
pray  for  his  soul  and  that  of  Aleanor,  his  wife.  This  John  Grey  was  son 
of  Henry  de  Grey,  of  Thurrock  Grey,  Essex,  by  Isolda,  niece  and  sole  heir 
of  Robert  Bardolf. 

He  married,  secondly,  Johanna,  who  survived  him  ;  and  in  the  Hilary 
term  at  York,  27  Edward  I.  she  recovered  lands  at  Croydon  as  dau.  and 
heiress  of  Walter  de  Winchesham. 

By  his  first  wife  Sir  Thomas  Maunsell  had  issue,  viz. : 

I.  Henry,  of  whom  afterwards. 

II.  John,  who  held  the  lands  of  Doddeworth,   Co.  Berks,   and  in    1292, 

jointly  with  Elias  Eddison,  held  the  manor  of  Eddison,  Co.  Leic,  of 
John  de  Hastings  by  the  service  of  half  a  knight's  fee,  Hastings, 
Lord  of  Abergaveny,  holding  them  of  Philip  Marmion,  as  of  his

him,  and  she,  2gth  Edward  I.,  recovered  the  lands  Neuton,  Herecut, 
Thughton,  Burton,  and  Contesse  Thorpe,  in  Co.  Leic,  from  Ric  de 
Ernesby.     He  left  issue,  viz. : 

(i)  John,  named  in  a  state  paper,  8  July,  13 10,  as  John,  son  of 
John  Maunsell.  In  13 13  letters  of  protection  were  issued  to  him 
on  his  going  beyond  seas  with  the  Earl  of  Richmond  in  the 
King's  service.  In  1324  he  was  assessed  on  the  lands  of  Eddeston 
and  Doddeworth  ;  and  on  his  death,  in  133  1-2,  the  King's  escheator 
was  commanded  to  take  into  the  King's  hands  all  the  lands  of 
which  John  Maunsell  died  possessed,  during  minority  of  the  heir. 
He  married  Joan ,  and  had  a  son,  viz : 

(A)  Richard,  aged  13  at  his  father's  death,  and  who,  in  1398,  held 
the  lands  of  Burbache  and  Eddeston  from  Richard  Earl  of 

III.  Joan,  married  her  grandfather's  ward,  Henry  Hoese,  who,  in  12G4, 
had  taken  part  with  the  Barons  against  the  King,  but  in  55th  Henry  III. 
was  pardoned  and  had  free  warren  for  his  manor  of  Childerston,  Co. 
Kent.  He  was  ancestor  of  the  Barons  of  Galtrim,  and  of  Edward 
Hussey,  created  Earl  of  Beaulieu  in  1784. 

Henry  Maunsell  married  Elina  or  Ellinor,  dau.  of  Hugh  Haels,  and  had, 
with  other  issue,  an  eldest  son,  viz. : 


Sir  Walter  MauNSELL,  Knight  of  the  Sepulchre,  who  held  the  manor  of 
Missenden,  etc.,  Co.  Bucks,  in  capite  of  the  King.  He  married  Emma, 
dau.  of  Sir  Wm.  Langton,  and  dying  about  latter  end  of  the  reign  of  Edward 
II.,  was  buried  before  the  altar  of  St.  Botolph's  Church,  Londoa  He  was

his  father-in-law  were  both  living  1367,  as  stated  in  MSS.  at  Britton  Ferry. 
He  also  held  lands  at  Brockton,  Co.  Salop,  from  the  Earl  of  Stafford  in 
1399,  and  his  heirs  held  them  in  1467  of  Humphry  Duke  of  Buckingham. 
He  was  succeeded  by  his  eldest  son,  viz. : 

Sir  Richard  Maunsell,  Knt.,  of  Oxwich,  Penrice,  and  Scurlage  Castles,  who 
died  in  1435,  and,  as  per  Inquisition  held  in  1440,  held  with  other  estates 
the  lands  of  Necleston,  Co.  Hereford,  from  John  de  Mowbray,  Duke  of 
Norfolk.  He  married  Elizabeth,  dau.  of  Gilbert  Turbeville,  of  Penline, 
son  of  Tomkyn,  son  of  Hamon,  and  had  issue,  viz. : 

I.  John,   who  married   Cecily,   dau.   and  heir  of   Sir  Wm.    Cantelupe,   of 

Cantelupestown  Castle,  Gower,  by  the  dau.  and  heir  of  Sir  Roger 
Umfraville,  Knt.,  Lord  of  Penmarsh,  by  Isabel,  widow  of  Howel  ap 
Vychon  Howel,  and  dau.  of  Wnx  Beauchamp,  Earl  of  Warwick,  de- 
riving from  the  royal  house  of  Plantagenet.  He  died  in  his  father's 
lifetime,  leaving  issue  a  son,  viz. : 

(i)  Philip,  who,  in  1435,  succeeded  to  his  grandfather's  estates,   as 
detailed  below. 

II.  William,  of  Mansellfield,   Gower,  married  Jane,   dau.  of   Thomas  ap 

Bevan  Gwin  ap  Howell  Melyn,  and  had  issue,  viz. : 

(i)  Morgan,  who  married  Jane,  dau.  of  Richard  Box,  and  had  issue,  viz. : 

(A)  David,  married  Catherine,  dau.  of  Philip  Cradoc,  of  Cheriton, 

and  had  issue  a  daughter,  Elizabeth,  who  married  Rees  ap 

Evan  ap  Ynys  y  Maerdy,  father  of  Leyson  Price,  of  Britton 


Ferry ;  from  whose  descendants  that  property  came  mto  the 
Maunsell  family  (see  page   24). 

(b)  Margaret,  married  Griffiths  Thomas,  of  Llandemore. 

(c)  Alice,  died  unmarried. 

Philip  ManSELL,  son  of  John  Maunsell  and  Cecily,  his  wife,  was  15  years  of 
age  when  he  succeeded  to  his  father's  and  grandfather's  estates,  as  per 
Inquisition  held  at  Swansea  by  Humphry  Plantagenet,  Duke  of  Gloucester, 
13^1  Henry  VI.  About  1444,  he  married,  first,  Mabel,  dau.  of  Griffiths 
Nicolas,  of  Newton,  Co.  Caermarthen,  heiress  of  her  mother,  Jane,  heiress 
of  Jenkin  ap  Rees  ap  David,  descended  from  Cadifor  ap  Dinawall.  In 
the  Inquisition  recorded  above,  Philip  is  mentioned  as  the  son  of  John,  and 
grandson  of  Richard  Maunsell. 

Amongst  the  MSS.  at  Britton  Ferry,  copied  by  Revd.  J.  M.  Traherne, 
appears  the  following  :  — "  Ego  Phillipus  filius  et  haeres  nuper  Johis  Maunsell 
de  Oxenwych,  10  die  mens  Maie,  1444."  By  a  deed  dated  1459-60,  to 
which  Sir  Wm.  Berkeley,  Knt.,  then  Seneschal  of  Gower,  and  others  are 
witnesses,  he  entailed  his  Gower  estates  on  his  sons,  John,  Leonard,  and 
Jenkyn.     (See  Appendix,  Nos.  "j"]  and  84.) 

He  married,  secondly,  about  this  latter  date,  Elizabeth,  dau.  and  heir 
of  Sir  Philip  Long,  Knt.,  and  had  further  issue. 

He  fought  at  Mortimers  Cross  against  Edward,  Earl  of  March  (after 
wards  Edward  IV.).  On  the  same  side  were  Jasper  Earl  of  Pembroke, 
James  Earl  of  Ormond,  and  Owen  Tudor  (who  had  married  Queen  Catherine, 
mother  of  Henry  VI.).  For  this  he  was  attainted  in  Parliament  in  1464, 
and  two  years  later  his  Gower  estates  were  bestowed  upon  Sir  Roger 
Vaughan,  Knt.,  as  per  Patent  Roll,  5th  Edward  IV. 

Philip  and  his  sons,  under  leadership  of  his  relative  the  Earl  of  Warwick, 
fought  throughout  for  the  Red  Rose.  Two  of  his  sons  were  slain ;  and 
at  the  battle  of  Tewkesbury  he  was  taken  prisoner  by  Sir  John  Conyers, 
and  was  soon  afterwards  beheaded. 

Philip  appears  to  have  been  the  first  to  omit  the  "u"  in    spelling    of 

the  name.     He  had  issue  by  his  first  wife,  viz. :

of  the  way  this  duty  was  performed  King  Louis  XVIII.  sent 
Mansell  a  golden  snuffbox,  in  the  lid  of  which  was  a  portrait  of 
the  King  painted  in  blue  on  ivory,  and  encircled  with  diamonds.

was  put  up  for  sale.  It  was  purchased  by  trustees  for  Mary 
Isabella,  sole  heiress  of  Richard  J.  Tibbits,  of  Barton  Seagrave, 
Northants,  now  Dowager  Viscountess  Hood  (see  p.  82).

(i)  On  27th  June,  1548,  Sir  Michl.  Stanhope  wrote  to  Sir  Edwd.  North  praying  him  to  ex- 
pedite the  lease  of  the  Manor  of  Hotham,  Co.  York,  to  Richd.  Maunsell,  and  on  6th  of  the 
following  month  it  was  sent. 

The  wills  of  Richard  and  of  Thomas,  and  of  John  Maunsell,  shew  that  they  held  the  following 
lands,  viz,  :— Chicheley,  Eckney,  Emberton,  Hardmeade,  Haversham,  Moussle,  Much  Crawley, 
North  Crawley,  Newport-Paynell,  Petisha,  and  Sherrington,  Co.  Bucks,  Hulcot  and  Kislingbury, 
Co.  Northants,  and  lands  in  Hereford,  at  Gloster,  and  at  Newporte,  also  Hanbury,  Worcestershire. 

About  1615-20,  the  Estate  of  Chicheley  was  sold  by  John  Maunsell  to  Sir  Anthony  Chester 
subject  to  a  charge  of  £1  12s.  p.  a.  for  the  poor  Widows  and  Widowers  of  the  Parish.  This 
charge  is  still  being  paid,  and  in  Charity  Commissioner's  report  is  styled  "  Mansell's  Gift." 
In  "Lipscomb's  Bucks,"  and  other  local  histories,  it  is  said  to  have  been  created  by  a  Lady  Mansell, 
but  I  have  not  been  able  to  definitely  fi.x  the  donorship.  Mrs.  Agnes  Maunsell,  in  will  proved 
1603,  left  money  for  the  poor  of  the  parish,  as  also  did  her  son  John,  but  these  were  not  annual 
charges  on  tlie  lands,  and  must  be  regarded  as  separate  and  distinct  from  the  first  mentioned 
charge  or  bequest.

large  sum  in  those  days.  In  1569  he  visited  Mary,  Queen 
of  Scots,  whilst  she  was  in  the  custody  of  the  Earl  and  Countess 
of  Shrewsbury  at  Tutbury,  and  had  the  honour  of  a  conversa- 
tion with  her.  In  1587,  the  Lord  Deputy  gave  him  the 
custody  of  Duncannon,  at  the  mouth  of  Waterford  harbour, 
the  fortifications  having  been  built  on  Sir  Nicholas'  ground, 
which  comprised  the  whole  barony  of  Dunbrody,  "and  had 
built  a  castle  which  commanded  the  fortifications,  and  could 
control  whoever  was  appointed  to  the  post." — (State  Papers,

Deputy  in  his  letter  to  Burleigh,  "the  special  ringleader 
of  all  Romish  and  Spanish  factions,"  with  a  recommenda- 
tion that  as  he  was  "  now  in  England,  it  would  be  prudent 
to  detain  him."  He  married  Margaret  Finglass,  leaving 
a  son.  Sir  Nicholas  Whyte,  of  Leixlip,  who  was  knighted 
at  Loughrower  in  1608,  and  married  Ursula,  dau.  of

Maximilian  I.  created  him  "  Baron  D'Albi,  both  for  himself  and  his  descend- 
ants," A.D.  1 5 13.  The  original  patent  is  still  at  Brussels,  and  is  attested 
by  letters  from  King  Henry  VIII.  to  the  Emperor,  setting  forth  the  motives 
which  induced  the  granting  of  the  patent,  namely :  "  The  origin  of  the 
name,  taken  from  Viti,  a  people  of  Germany,  the  bravery  which  that  noble- 
man displayed  at  the  sieges  of  Tourenne  and  Tournay,  the  goodness  of  his 
disposition,  and,  finally,  the  beauty  of  his  person,  a  quality  hereditary  in

Ignatius  White,  Or  Vitus,  was  created  a  Baronet  by  King  Charles  II., 

Sir,  Bart.,  29th  June,   1677.     In  the  College  of  Anns,  London,  is 

Marquis  D'Albeville,       an  official  copy,  I.  xxvi.,  fo.  100,  of  the  Earl  Marshal's 

warrant,  30th  October,    1686  (2  Jac.  II.)  to  enter  the 

royal  sign  manuel  of  Charles  II.  (7th  April,  1679),  whereby  he  allowed  "  The 


Right  Honourable  Sir  Ignatius  White,  ahas  D'Alby,  Knt.  Baronet  of  Eng- 
land, and  Baron  de  Vigue,  now  Marquis  D'Albeville  and  Knt.  Baron,  Count 
and  Marquis  of  the  Empire,  to  receive  honours  from  any  King  at  amity  with 
his  Majesty."  Accordmgly,  there  is  entered  a  grant  from  the  Emperor 
Leopold,  dated  August,  1658,  to  Dominick  Vitus,  alias  White,  Baron  and 
Count  D'Albi,  that  he  and  his  children  should  be  Counts  and  Countesses 
D'Albi.  Also  one  from  the  same,  'dated  20th  August,  1677,  to  Ignatius 
Vitus,  ahas  White,  that  he  and  his  children  should  be  Marquis  and  Mar- 
chioness D'Albeville.  The  Dutch  Ambassador,  Van  Citters,  in  announcing 
his  appointment  as  Ambassador  to  the  States  in  1686  mentions  him  as 
"formerly  known  by  the  name  of  Baron  White,  an  Irishman,  and  a  Roman 
Catholic,  of  good  understanding  and  good  breeding,  who  conducted  the 
business  of  the  English  Monarchy  for  several  years  at  Brussels  and  Madrid 
in  the  lifetime  of  the  late  King  Charles  II."  Whilst  in  Holland  he  gave  a 
magnificent  entertainment,  and  had  a  medal  struck,  to  celebrate  the  birth 
of  Prince  James.  In  consequence  of  his  persistent  and  effectual  demands 
that  Bishop  Burnett  should  be  removed  from  the  Council  of  the  Prince  of 
Orange,  he  incurred  that  political  prelate's  unstinted  animosity,  insomuch  that 
the  Marquis  was  subjected  to  much  personal  danger,  and  many  insults  from  ■ 
Burnett's  partizans.  After  the  battle  of  the  Boyne,  by  D'Albeville's  advice 
and  that  of  the  Duke  of  Powis,  the  two  Chancellors  and  the  Lord  Chief 
Baron,  the  trusted  members  of  the  Council,  King  James  resolved  to  go  to 
France.  D'Albeville  accompanied  the  King,  and  was  placed  under  attainder 
1 69 1,  and  on  nth  May  of  that  year  he  and  Charles  White,  of  Leixlip ; 
Nicholas  White,  of  Clonmel ;  Rowland  Wliite,  of  Newry ;  Nicholas  White, 
of  New  Ross ;  Robert  and  Richard  and  John  Grace,  of  Courtown ;  Robert 
Grace,  senior  and  junior,  of  Thomastown ;  and  Richard  and  Ohver  Grace, 
of  Athlone,  and  several  others,  were  proclaimed  outlaws  from  the  Tholsol 
at  Dublin.  He  died  in  France  prior  to  1698.  He  married,  first  the  Hon. 
Maria,  dau.  of  Patrick  FitzThomas,  nineteenth  Lord  of  Kerry.  She  died 
in  1680,  and  administration  to  her  estate  was  taken  out  November,  1684.

James  White  was  Lieutenant  in  Colonel  Dongan's  Limerick  Regiment  of  Foot, 
of  which  Patrick  Sarsfield  was  Captain.  After  the  siege  of  Limerick  this 
regiment  went  to  France  and  was  re-formed,  and  then  named  "The  King  of 
England's  Regiment  of  Dragoons,"  of  which  Patrick  Sarsfield,  Lord  Kil- 
mallock,  was  Colonel,  and  White  was  Captain.  The  Chevalier  de  Bellereve 
— Marshal  Vendome — in  his  report  of  the  battle  of  Villa  Viciosa,  1710,  says  : 
"The  Lieut.-Colonel  of  the  regiment  received  a  musket  shot  through  the 
body  while  charging  the  enemy,  and  the  Marquis  D'Albeville,  one  of  his 
brave  captains,  sabre  in  hand,  all  covered  with  wounds,  lost  his  life,  after 
having  won  admiration  by  many  brave  and  intrepid  actions."  He  had,  with

(25)  "Maunsell  House,  Somersetshire;  now  the  seat  of  Sir  Cuthbert  Slade,  Bart.,  was 
the  hereditary  possession  of  the  Maunsell  family  for  twenty  generations.  In  the  time  of 
Henry  II.,  William  de  Erleigh  granted  it  to  Philip  Arbalistarius  in  free  marriage  with

de  Maunsel,  son  of  the  above-mentioned  Philip,  who  married  a  daughter  of  Sir  Hugh 
de  Aubervilie.  He  was  the  first  of  this  branch  that  assumed  the  name  Maunsell.  In  this 
family  the  manor,  and  ancient  mansion,  continued  till  the  time  of  Charles  I.,  when  it 
was  purchased  of  their  heirs  by  the  family  of  Bacon,  who  resided  there  in  the  commence- 
ment of  nineteenth  century.  Robert  de  Maunsell  bore  on  his  seal,  temp.  Henry  IV.,  a 
hand  clenched  ;  but  William,  son  of  the  said  Robert,  took  the  present  arms,  namely, 
Sable,  three  Jambs  argent." — ^See  Collinson's  "Somerset." 

(26)  Maunsell  Court,  or  Place,  Co.  Berks,  appears  to  have  passed  into  the  hands  of 
the  great  Berks  and  Oxon  family  of  Fittiplace,  either  by  purchase  or  intermarriage,  and 
was  held  by  them  temp.  Henry  MIL  The  old  distich  still  remains  in  that  locality, 
evidencing  the  wealth  and  influence  of  this  and  two  other  families:  — 

"The  Laceys,  the  Tracys,  and  Fittiiilaces, 
Own  all  the  mansions,  the  lands,  and  the  places." 
In  1673  the  manor  belonged  to  a  Maijor  Dunch,  and  his  daughter  and  heiress,  Jane, 
married  Francis  Keck,  which  latter  family  sold  the  place,  in  1745,  to  John  Allan  Pusey. 
It  still  forms  a  ])ortion  of  the  Pusey  estates  in  that  county.  Maijor  Dunch's  father  was 
M.P.  for  Berks  in  the  Parliament  1654,  '56,  '58.  He  married  the  sister-in-law  of  Richard 
Cromwell  (the  Protector's  son).

to  have  given  a  rent  charge  of  £2  12s.  p.  a.  to  the  poor  of  the  parish.  This  rent  charge 
issues  out  of  a  close  of  pasture  land  containing  about  two  acres,  and  now  forming  portion 
of  the  Chester  estate.  It  is  regularly  paid  to  the  vicar  by  instalments  of  20s.  and  32s. 
on  Good  Friday  and  St.  Thomas'  Day  in  every  year,  and  distributed  in  shares  of  is. 
each  to  poor  persons  selected  by  him.  The  objects  chosen  are  chiefly  widows  and 
widowers  of  good  character,  and  in  receipt  of  parish  relief.  A  list  of  them  is  kept  in 
the  church  books.

close  to  Chicheley  Hall,  such  being  of  very  ancient  origin,  and  then  only  allowed  to 
be  held  by  the  privileged  few.

your  baptism  by  your  godfather  and  great-uncle,  Bussy  Mansel,  Esq.,  late  of  Britton 
Ferry,  in  Co.  Glamorgan,  in  memory  of  your  stout  and  loyal  grandfather,  Sir  Anthony

his  body,  while  he  was  briskly  charging  and  routing  the  enemy.  After  that  sad  disaster 
his  horse  ran  up  and  down  the  ranks  with  the  lower  ]>art  of  his  dead  master's  body, 
being  fast  locked  in  his  war  saddle,  with  terror  and  affrightment  both  to  friends  and 
enemies. "^See  "Gentleman's  Magazine,"  1841.

The  following  paper  mentions  the  death  of  Capt.  Thos.  Maunsell  at  Gloster,  ante 
1646.  It  appears  to  have  been  drawn  up  by  some  of  the  family  for  the  purpose  of  obtain- 
ing opinion  of  counsel  respecting  Lowcsmore  Farm,  Co.  Gloster,  which  was  sequestrated 
in  consequence  of  Thomas  Halsewood,  husband  of  Dorothy,  relict  of  Richard  Maunsell, 
being  in  arms  against  the  Parliament.  The  Maunsclls  were  in  possession  of  it  four  years 
after,  for  Mrs.  Aphra,  and  her  sons,  gave  receipts  for  sums  of  money  paid  to  them  out 
of  the  Lowesmore  rents. 

"The  cas3  concerning  Lowesmore  Farm,  being  a  lease  about  twenty  years  yet  to 
come,   1646." 

"John  Maunsell,  of  Thorpe  Malsor,  in  Co.  Northants,  being  possessed  of  Lowesmore 
Farm,  in  Co.  Gloster,  sold  the  same  to  Richard  Maunsell,  of  the  Middle  Temple,  Esq., 
his  uncle,  who  took  for  his  assurance  a  covenant  for  the  said  John  Maunsell  to  convey 
it  to  whom  he  should  nominate  by  his  last  will  and  testament  or  other  declaration  in 
writmg. " 

1631.  Richard  Maunsell,  by  a  declaration  in  writing  in  nature  of  a  will,  gave  Lose- 
more  Farm  to  Dorothy,  his  wife,  for  life.  And  he  willed  that,  after  her  decease,  the 
children  of  the  said  John  Maunsell,  of  Thorpe  Malsor,  and  of  Thomas  Maunsell,  his 
brother,  m  Ireland,  should  have  every  one  ten  pounds  out  of  the  first  rents,  and  that 
Susan,  the  wife  of  John  Maunsell,  should  have  ^20  per  annum.  The  rest  to  be  divided 
between  Robert  ]\Iaunsell,  the  son  of  John,  and  one  of  the  sons  of  his  brother,  Thomas 
Maunsell,  and  by  him  to  be  nominated  to  be  a  student  in  the  Middle  Temple.  Shortly 
after  the  said  Richard  Maunsell  died. 

John  Maunsell  took  letters  of  administration,  and  conveyed  the  estates  in  trust  to 
perform  the  said  declaration. 

1638.  The  said  Dorothy,  widow  of  Richard  Maunsell,  married  Thos.  Haslewood,  of 
Bel  ton,  in  the  Co.  of  Rutland,  Esq.,  who  enjoyed  the  estate  untU  it  was  sequestrated  by 
the  Committee  of  Gloucester,  he  being  a  recusant  in  arms  against  the  Parliament.  He 
coming  in  to  submit,  and  make  his  composition,  was  committed  a  prisoner  to  Leycester, 
where  he  now  remains. 

Thomas  Maunsell  died  at  Gloucester,  and,  before  his  death,  nominated  John  Maunsell, 
his  son,  now  Lieutenant  to  Major  Babington,  to  have  the  moiety  of  Losemore. 

Query. — What  remedy  is  in  this  case  by  address  to  the  Parliament  for  the  above- 


mentioned  Dorothy,  Haslewood  being  a  lecusant,  but  hath  lived  in  the  Parliament 
Quaiters,  and  is  impoverished  by  her  husband's  delinquency. 

Or  lor  John  Maunsell,  of  Thorpe  Malsor,  in  respect  to  his  wife  and  children's  interest, 
and  is  now  Justice  of  Peace,  Com'tter  of  Accounts  for  Northampton,  and  hath  lost  near 
j/;i,ooo  by  the  Cavaliers. 

Or  for  Lieutenant  John  Maunsell,  to  whom  much  is  due  in  arrears,  and  hath  received 
great  wounds  in  the  Parliament  service."

there  for  some  days  after  the  battle  of  Worcester,  A.D.  1651,  when,  accompanied  by 
Lord  Wilmot  and  Colonel  Gunter,  he  came  to  Lewes  on  his  way  to  the  coast.  Mansell 
arranged  with  the  master  of  a  vessel,  that  lay  at  Shoreham,  to  convey  the  King  to  France, 
but  did  not  reveal  the  name.  During  conversation  at  the  dinner  table  the  ship  master 
suddenly  called  Mansell  aside  and  expostulated  with  him  for  recommending  the  King 
instead  of  some  person  pretended. — See  Horsefield's  "Hist,  of  Lewes,"  vol.  i.,  p.  201.

(75)  Henry  de  Newburgh,  alias  Beaumont,  alias  de  Bello  Monte,  Earl  of  Warwick, 
assisted  by  the  Knights  de  Braose,  Scurlage,  de  Penrice,  de  la  Mare,  etc.,  conquered  the 
peninsula  of  Gower.  He  held  the  chief  seigniory  of  Swansea,  and  the  others  received 
from  him  large  estates  in  Gower  by  the  service  of  one  knight's  fee.  They  each  erected 
fortified  castles.  Oxwich  Castle  appears  to  have  been  built  by  John  de  Braose,  of 
Llandinas,  brother  of  William,  Lord  of  Gower.  His  granddaughter  and  heiress,  Agnes, 
married  Robert  de  la  Mare.  They  are  said  to  have  been  drowned  in  Oxwich  Bay,  and 
a  handsome  monument  was  erected  to  their  memoiy  in  Oxwich  Church.  It  is  in  an  arched 
recess  on  the  north  side  of  the  chancel,  surmounted  by  a  highly  enriched  canopy  of 
freestone.  The  figures  are  recumbent,  and  represent  a  knight  and  his  lady,  the  former 
clad  in  armour  of  mixed  mail  and  plate.,  and  the  latter  in  the  flowing  robes  and  loose 
falling  sleeves,  with  cuff^s  and  collar  of  the  period.  There  is  no  name  nor  date,  but 
from  time  immemorial  the  niche  has  been  known  as  "Doolamuir's  Hole."  The  lady  being 
placed  on  the  right  of  her  husband,  it  is  supposed,  by  good  authorities,  that  this  unusual 
position  indicates  that  she  was  an  heiress.  Their  daughter  and  heiress  married  Sir 
Robert  Penrice,  of  Penrice  Castle,  whose  son.  Sir  John  de  Penrice,  had  an  only  child 
and  heiress,  Isabel,  who  married  Sir  Hugh  Maunsell.  An  old  gateway  at  Oxwich  Castle 
is  surmounted  wth  a  quartered  shield  bearing  the  Maunsell,  Penrice,  and  Scurlage  arms, 
namely,  in  the  ist  and  4th  Maunsell,  and  in  the  2nd  and  3rd  Penrice  and  Scurlage 
respectively.  The  present  Oxwich  Castle,  contiguous  to,  or  upon  site  of,  the  more  ancient 
one,  was  built  by  Sir  Rice  Mansell,  Knt.,  temp.  Henry  VIII. 

In  1557,  owing  to  a  dispute  about  the  possession  of  a  French  vessel,  cargo,  and 
prisoners,  etc.,  wrecked  in  the  bay.  Sir  George  Herbert  attacked  the  castle  during  the 
absence  of  its  owner.  L^pon  his  making  a  demand  for  admission,  Sir  Rice's  son,  Edward, 
sent  answer  to  ihe  effect  that  "he  should  not  come  into  his  father's  house  to  ryfell  ther, 
and  he  woulde  rather  dye  in  the  gates  than  he  sholde  enter  with  force  ther."  During  the 
melee  that  ensued  Edward  was  wounded  in  the  arm,  and  his  aunt,  Mrs.  Anne  INIaunsell, 
of,  was  killed  by  the  blow  of  a  stone  thrown  by  one  of  Herbert's  retainers. 
For  this  attack  Sir  George,  and  his  accomplices,  were  arrested.  They  were  tried  before 
the  "Star  Chamber,"  and,  being  found  guilt)',  were  imprisoned  in  the  Flete. 

(76)  Penrice  Castle  is  also  said  to  have  been  one  of  the  castles  built  by  Henry  de 
Newburgh,  Earl  pf  Watwick.  The  lordship  of  it  was  given  to  the  Penrice  family.  As 
above  related.  Sir  Robert  de  Penrice,  married  Agnes,  dau.  and  heir  of  Sir  Robert  de  la 
Mare,  of  Oxwich  Castle.  Their  descendant.  Sir  Robert  Penrice,  was  Commissioner  of 
.A.rray  in  1322,  shortly  before  the  decisive  battle  of  Boroughbridge  ;  and  in  1326  he  was 
commissioned  to  raise  forces  on  behalf  of  Edward  II.  in  Gower,  Nedesland,  and  Kilvey. 
The  castle  remained  in  possession  of  the  family  until  close  of  the  fourteenth  century, 
when  it  passed  to  the  Maunsells  by  the  marriage  of  Isabella  de  Penrice  with  Sir  Hugh 

(77)  In  1461  Owen  Tudor  (who  had  married  Queen  Catherine,  mother  of  Henry  VI.), 
with  Jasper  Eari  of  Pembroke,  James  Earl  of  Ormond,  Philip  Mansell,  and  a  great 
number  of  Welsh  and  Irishmen,  gave  battle  to  Edward  Earl  of  March  (afterwards  Edward 
IV.)  at  Mortimer's  Cross,  in  Wales.     Being  defeated,  many  of  them  were  taken  prisoners 


and  beheaded.  William  of  Worcester  in  his  "Itinerary,"  p.  327,  says:  "Philip  Mansell, 
armiger,  was  arrested  and  beheaded,  with  Hopkyn  ap  Rees,  another  Gower  gentleman." 
The  battle  took  place  in  February,  1461,  and  yet  tliere  is  a  doctiment  amongst  the 
Penrice  MSS.,  dated  3rd  April  of  that  year,  signed  and  sealed  by  Philip  Maunsell  at 
Oxwich  Castle.  This  would  prove  that  he  could  not  have  been  beheaded  at.  the  date 
stated.  A  writ  of  attainder  did  not  issue  against  hira  until  3rd  Edward  IV.,  and  his 
estates  were  confiscated  and  granted  to  Sir  Roger  Vaughan,  Knt. ,  fifth  Ed.  IV.  He 
fought  throughout  for  the  Lancastrian  party.  At  the  battle  of  Tewkesbury  he  was  taken 
prisoner  by  Sir  John  Conyers,  and  was  soon  afterwards  beheaded.  On  the  overthrow  of 
the  Yorkists,  and  on  the  accession  of  Henry  VII.  in  1485,  the  attainder  was  repealed, 
and  Jenkyn  Mansell,  surnamed  "Dewr, "  or  the  valiant,  became  Lord  of  Oxwich.  See 
Patent  Rolls  and  Penrice  MSS. 

Some  authorities  state  that  Jenkyn  Mansell  was  beheaded  at  Chepstow,  after 
Buckingham's  rebellion,  in  14S3,  but  as  Morgan  IMauncell  passed  a  bond  to  him  dated  3rd 
July,  14S6,  and  that  his  eldest  son,  Rhys,  was  born  25th  January,  1487,  it  will  at  once 
appear  evident  that  he  could  not  have  been  beheaded  in  1483.  In  the  Gower  pedigrees  by 
Mr.  G.  T.  Clark,  F.S.A.,  and  repeated  by  the  Revd.  J.  D.  Davies  in  his  book  on  the 
Gower  parishes,  it  is  stated  that,  "Jenkyn  Mansel,  Esq.,  son  of  Philip  Mansel  and 
Mabella,  his  wife,  married  Edith,  daughter  of  Sir  Geo.  Kyne,  or  Kene,  Knt.,  by  Cecil, 
daughter  of  King  Edward  IV.,  and  widow  of  James,  Prince  of  Scotland."  This  cannot 
bo  correct,  for  as  Cecil  was  born  in  146S,  she  could  not  have  been  grandmother  to 
Sir  Rees  Mansel  who  was  born  in  1487.  See  Inquisition  held  at  Swansea,  in  April,  1510, 
as  to  Sir  Rees'  age. 

(78)  In  1585,  a  grant  was  made  to  Philip  iMaunscU,  Henry  Maunsell,  and  Charles 
Maunsell,  of  the  rectory  and  church  of  Llanrhidian  and  Penrice,  the  lordship  and  Manor 
of  Millwood  in  Gowerland,  parcel  of  the  possession  of  the  late  Preceptory  of  Slebech,  Co. 
Pembroke,  of  the  late  Priory  of  St.  John  of  Jerusalem  in  England,  etc. 

(79)  .Amongst  the  Penrice  MSS.  is  a  Maunsell  pedigree  compiled  in  1603  by  Rafe 
Brooke,  York  Herald.  It  is  on  vellum,  measures  8  feet  6  inches  long  by  3  feet  6  inches 
wide,  and  is  illustrated  with  231  shields  of  arms  exquisitely  drawn  and  coloured.  In  this 
the  Penrice  arms  are  given  as — Per  pale  indented  argent  and  gules  ;  and  the  de  la  Mare 
arms — Gules  two  lions  passant  gardant  argent  collared  azure.

(88)  "Colonel  John  Mansel,  C.B..  of  Smedmore,  Co.  Dorset,  entered  the  British 
army  as  ensign  in  the  53rd  Regiment.  He  embarked  in  1795  for  the  West  Indies,  and 
sailed  in  that  ill-fated  fleet  commanded  by  Sir  H.  Christian.  He  was  present  in  the 
attack  on  Morne  Chabot  ;  at  the  siege  of  Morne  Fortunee,  in  the  island  of  St.  Lucie  ; 
the  whole  of  the  Carib  war  in  St.  Vincent;  at  the  capture  of  Trinidad;  and  at  the  siege 
of  i\Ioro  Castle,  in  the  island  of  Porto  Rico.  In  1805  he  was  promoted  to  a  majority 
without  puichase.  In  1807  he  joined  the  first  battalion  53rd  Regiment  in  Bengal.  In 
1809-10,  in  consequence  of  disturbances  in  Madras,  his  regiment  formed  part  of  an 
expedition  under  Colonel  Martindell  (Bengal  army).  In  August,  1811,  he  joined  the 
second  battalion  in  Spain  ;  he  was  selected  to  command  all  the  light  companies  of  the 
sixth  division  during  the  campaigns  of  1811-12,  which  included  the  skirmish  with  the 
enemy's  cavalry  near  Carpio,  when  Major-General  Anson's  brigade  of  cavalry  was 
attacked  by  superior  numbers  and  forced  to  retreat.  At  this  juncture,  the  light  troops 
under  Mansel's  command  succeeded  in  gaining  the  rear  of  the  enemy,  killing  and 
capturing  men  and  horses.  He  was  present  at  the  sieges  of  Ciudad  Rodrigo,  Badajos, 
the  forts  of  Salamanca,  and  at  the  battle  of  Salamanca.  In  this  memorable  conflict  the 
command  of  the  regiment  devolved  upon  him,  and  for  it  he  received  the  gold  war  medal, 
and  was  promoted  to  the  rank  of  Brevet-Lieutenant-Colonel.  During  this  action  his 
horse  was  killed  under  him.  He  commanded  a  brigade  of  the  sixth  division  during  the 
pursuit  of  the  enemy  to  Arevola.  He  then  returned  to  his  regiment,  and  remained  in 
command  of  it  until  the  arrival  of  the  army  before  Burgos.  In  1813,  he  led  the  second 
provisional  battalion,  composed  of  four  companies  of  the  Queen's  and  four  of  the  53rd 
Regiment,  during  the  operations  on  the  Garonne,  and  in  the  general  action  at  Toulouse, 
for  which  he  received  a  clasp.  He  headed  a  brigade  in  the  fourth  division  at  Eaux  for 
a  considerable  time,  and  on  the  march  to  Bordeaux  the  command  of  the  whole  division 
devolved  upon  him.  The  second  battalion  53rd  Regiment  having  been  selected  to 
accompany  Napoleon  to  St.  Helena,  Lieutenant-Colonel  Mansel  took  the  command  of  it 
on  the  promotion  of  his  brother-in-law.  Sir  George  Bingham,  K.C.B.,  to  the  brevet  rank 
of  General.  He  was  made  Companion  of  the  Bath  at  the  institution  of  that  order,  and

Thomas  Jerard,  of  Chilton,  had  issue,  besides  Egidius,  James,  John,  and  Thomas, 
an  eldest  son  and  heir,  Robert  Jerard,  of  Samford  Orcas  and  Chilton,  who  married 
Eliza,  dau.  of  Richard  Watts,  of  North  Cadburie,  in  Co.  Somerset,  and  had  issue,  viz.  :

(100)  The  family  of  Clavell,  or  Clavyle,  can  boast  of  an  antiquity  not  to  be  equalled  in  this 
(Dorset)  and  very  rarely  in  any  other  County.  They  have  resided  and  had  possessions  in  Dorset 
almost  ever  since  the  Conquest.  In  Domesday  Book  Walterus  de  Clavile,  or  Glanvile,  held 
Alveronetune,  Cnolle,  Holne,  Cume,  Mordune.  The  Exeter  Domesday  Book  calls  him 
de  Clayhilla.  In  the  Black  Book  at  the  Exchequer  Radulphus  Calvell,  (f.  Clavile),  held  a 
Knight's  fee  of  Alured  de  Lincoln. 

John  Kypston,  rector  of  Penbrugg,  Co.  Hereford,  quits  claim  to  John  Sperhauk,  parson  of 
the  Holy  Trinity  in  Wareham,  &c,,  to  the  lands  called  Smedmore,  which  he  had  by  feoffment  of 
Wm.  Wyott,  senr.,  of  Parva  Kymerich. 

Smedmore  lies  a  mile  from  Great  Kimmeridge,  and  seems  to  be  the  Metmore  of  Domesday 
Book,  when  it  was  held  by  Richard  of  William  de  Braiose. 

Joan,  dau.  and  heir  of  Wm.  Wyott,  by  Agnes  his  wife,  dau.  and  heir  of  John  Estoke,  alias 
Middlestreet,  married  John  Clavyle.  By  her  Barnston,  West  Orchard,  Smedmore,  and  Baltington 
came  into  the  family. 

I.  Ed.  IV.  (1461).  John  Clavyle  and  Joan  his  wife,  granted  the  Manor  of  Barnston  for  life 
to  Christian,  late  wife  of  John  Clavyle,  their  son  and  heir-apparent,  who  died  in  his  father's 

II.  Ed.  IV.     Joan,  late  wife  of  John  Clavyle,  granted  Smedmore  to  her  son  Thomas  for  life. 
XXII.  Ed.  IV.     William,  son  and  heir  of  John  Clavyle  of  Barnston,  lets  to  farm  to  Thomas 

his  uncle,  lands  in  Smedmore  for  60  years,  paying  yearly  13s.  4d.,  and  half  a  pound  of  pepper. 

From  this  William  descended  John  Clavell  of  Barnston  (whose  daughter  and  heiress,  Grace, 
married  Wm.  Knoyle  of  Samford  Orcas.  See  page  104).  John  Clavell's  monument  is  in  Church 
KnoUe,  Co.  Dorset,  and  is  described  as  follows  :  — 

In  the  North  Aisle  against  the  East  Wall  is  an  old  altar  monument  of  Pnrbeck  marble,  with  a 
canopy  supported   by   four   fluted  pillars,  under  which,   in   three  compartments,  are,  first,  the 
portraiture  of  an  old  gentleman  in  armour,  bareheaded,  kneeling  at  a  desk,  his  hands  uplifted,  a 
sword  by  his  side,  and  on  the  desk  an  open  book.     On  the  ground,  near  him,  are  his  helmet  and 
gauntlets.     Under  him  is  the  following  inscription  in  old  English  characters — 
"  The  figure  of  John  Clavell  Esquire 
Housband  of  these  two  wives 

On  an  escutcheon,  over  his  head, —  1  and  4  vaire,  a  chief;  2  and  3.  six  escallops,  3,  2,  and  I. 
Crest — A  stag's  head  cabossed,  sideways  ;  between  the  horns  an  image  with  a  mitre  or  cope, 
and  somewhat  like  an  arrow-head  on  the  neck. 

Second — On  the  right  hand,  a  lady  kneeling  at  a  desk  ;  on  which  is  a  book  open  ;  her  hands

inscription: — 

"  The  figure  of  Mistris  Susan,  wife  to  the  aforesaid  John,  daughter  of  Robert  Coker, 
of  Maupowder  in  the  County  Dorset,  Esquire.     Made  A.  MCCCCCLXXII." 

All  the  figures  and  inscriptions  are  on  brass  plates  inserted  in  the  marble. 

(See  Hutchins'  "  Hist,  of  Dorset.") 
Smedmore  is  now  owned  by  the  Mansels  of  Dorset,  having  been  inherited  by  them  from 
the  Clavells  through  the  Richards  and  Pleydell  families.     (See  pages  31,  43  and  104.) 

(loi.)  William  Ware  of  Farnalogh  (see  page  30,  ob.  1730).  He  was  son  of  John  Ware  of 
Moortown,  by  Rebecca,  daughter  of  Walter  Tregellin  of  Ballinadee,  and  married,  in  171 3,  Charity, 
daughter  of  Thomas  Owgan,  all  of  Co.  Cork. 

(102.)  Lieut.  Mansell,  R.N.,  son  of  the  late  Walter  Mansell,  Esq.,  of  Woodbury  House,  Co. 
Oxford,  married,  first,  in  1S30,  Phillis,  only  dan.  of  Joseph  Horsford,  Esq.,  of  Weymouth ; 
secondly,  in  1836,  Susanna  Maria,  only  daughter  of  John  Surman,  Esq.,  of  the  Lodge,  Malvern, 
Worcester.  When  Midshipman  of  the  Morgiana  sloop,  serving  on  the  coast  of  Africa,  he,  on 
the  loth  of  December,  1S19,  had  command  of  the  gig,  and  assisted  at  the  capture,  by  boarding, 
in  open  day,  of  the  Spanish  armed  slave-schooner  "  Esperan^a,"  of  greatly  superior  force.  On 
that  occasion,  Mr.  Mansell,  followed  by  a  marine  named  Lord,  was  the  first  on  the  enemy's  deck. 
For  the  space  of  two  minutes  he  and  his  brave  companion,  from  unavoidable  circumstances, 
were  left  unsupported  in  the  presence  of  very  fearful  odds,  but  they  made  ample  use  of  their 
time,  the  former  attacking,  wounding  and  overcoming  the  captain  of  the  slaver,  and  another 
|)erson  ;  and  the  marine  killing  the  man  at  the  wheel.  The  loss  of  the  assailed  in  the  affair 
amounted  altogether  to  two  men  killed  and  six  wounded;  that  of  the  British  to  three  slightly 
wounded.  Among  the  latter  was  Mansell,  who  had  been  previously  severely  bruised  by  cold 
shot  thrown  into  the  boats  with  a  view  of  sinking  them  during  their  approach. 

In  consideration  of  his  gallant  behaviour  on  the  occasion  he  was  so  strongly  recommended 
in  the  despatches  to  the  Admiralty,  and  his  claim  to  promotion  so  warmly  pressed  by  Mr. 
Wilberforce,  that  on  14th  September,  1821,  he  was  promoted  to  the  rank  of  Lieutenant. 

(See  O'Byrne's  "Naval  Biogi.  Dicty/'page  721). 

(103)  I  Henry  V.  Thomas  Boyvyle,  of  Tirlyngton,  Co.  Leicester,  and  Joan,  late  wife  of 
Wm.  Chetwynd,  sued  Robert  Evyngton  and  others  for  land  in  Tirlyngton,  which  John  le  Maunsell, 
their  kinsman,  and  whose  heirs  they  were,  had  given  to  Saer  Harecourt  in  frank  marriage  with 
Isabella,  his  daughter ;  and  which  should  revert  to  them — Saer  and  Isabella  having  left  no  issue. 

John  le  Maunsell  had  a  son  John,  whose  son  John  had  a  son  Robert,  who  had  two  daughters, 
viz. :  Joan  and  Margaret.  Joan,  one  of  the  plaintiffs,  married  Wm.  Chetwynd.  Margaret 
married  —  Boyville,  and  had  a  son,  Thomas  Boyville,  the  second  plaintiff. 

6  Henry  V.  John  Mauntell,  Northampton,  and  Elizabeth,  his  wife,  sued  Ralph  Paries,  and 
Alice,  his  wife,  for  lands  and  rents  in  Stokebruere,  which  William  de  Hareweden  gave  to 
Robert  de  Hareweden  for  his  life,  with  remainder  to  Robert,  son  of  Henry  de  Hareweden,  and 
the  heirs  of  his  body.

(104)  2  Richard  III.  (1484).  Thomas  Mansell,  Esquire,  had  a  permit  to  go  over  to  Guernsey 
with  two  men  in  his  train  (Harl  MSS.,  No.  433,  fol.  212).    In  1568  John  Mancel,  '^des  parties  de 


Normandie,"  settled  in  the  Island.     He  was  probably  a   Huguenot  refugee.     As  recorded  on 
page  157  Wm.  Mansell,  of  Weymouth,  also  settled  ip  Guernsey  in  reign  of  Charles  U. 

(105)  James  Perchard  Mansell  entered  the  H.  E.  I.  C.  Navy,  about  the  year  1796,  and  in 
1800  while  serving  in  the  "Kent,"  Captain  Revington,  was  captured,  after  a  most  severe  action 
off  the  Sand  Heads,  in  the  Bay  of  Bengal,  by  the  French  frigate,  "Revenante,"  commanded  by 
Surcouf.  Captain  Revington  was  killed  and  several  of  his  crew.  He  afterwards  served  in  the 
"  Monarch,''  the  "  Henry  Addington,"  etc.,  and  in  1811,  while  in  command  of  the  "  Coldstream," 
died  of  fever  caught  from  exposure  while  rescuing  a  drunken  seaman  from  a  watery  grave.  He 
was  buried  off  Point  de  Galle,  in  Ceylon, 

(106)  William  M.  Mansell,  Captain  Royal  Marines,  was  present  in  the  engagement  with 
pirates  at  Borneo  and  defeat  of  their  forces  and  destruction  of  their  stockades  in  Malloodoo  Bay 
in  1845.  He  served  in  the  China  expedition  of  1857-58,  including  the  operations  at  Canton,  with 
the  storming  and  capture  of  the  city.     (Medal  and  clasp,") 

(107)  George  Hope  Mansell  entered  the  Navy  1841.  Served  in  the  Pacific  during  the 
Russian  War  of  1854-1855,  and  was  present  in  the  "Pique"  40,  at  the  unsuccessful  attack  on 
Prtropaulovski,  4th  September,  1854.  In  his  despatch  describing  the  attack.  Captain  Sir 
Frederick  W.  E.  Nicolson,  Bart.,  of  the  "Pique,"  said  "Lieutenants  Bland  and  Mansell  of  this 
ship,  commanded  the  '  Pique's  '  seamen  on  shore,  and  were  among  the  last  to  leave  the  beach." 
The  "  Pique's"  casualities  were  thirty-nine  in  killed,  missing,  and  wounded.  He  served  also  on 
board  the  "Calcutta"  84,  and  the  "Nankin"  50,  during  the  hostilities  in  China,  from  1856  to 
1858,  and  received  the  Chinese  medal. 

(108)  John  Mansell  entered  the  Hon.  E.  I.  C.  Navy  in  1798,  and  served  that  year  in  the 
"Osterly,"  Captain  Piercey,  which,  in  the  Bay  of  Bengal,  was  suddenly  attacked  by  the  French 
frigate  "  La  Forte  ''  56,  and  only  captured  after  a  most  determined  resistance  of  forty-seven 
minutes,  during  which  Captain  Piercey,  and  twenty  others,  were  severely  wounded,  and  thirteen 
of  the  crew  killed.  "  La  Forte  "  was  shortly  after  this  herself  captured  while  securing  her  prize, 
by  the  "Sibylle,"  Captain  Cook,  and  the  prisoners  released.  The  H.  E.  I.  C.  handsomely 
rewarded  Captain  Piercey,  and  all  the  officers  received  promotion.  John  Mansell  afterwards 
served  in  the  "  Dover  Castle,"  and  was  employed  in  the  expedition  against  Macao,  in  China. 
He  served  in  1803  in  the  "  Princess  Charlotte,"  and  again  had  to  encounter  a  vastly  superior  force 
of  three  French  frigates,  the  "  Marengo  "  80,  "  Atalanta  "  50,  and  the  "  Surveillante  "  56,  in  the 
Bay  of  Vizigoptam,  but  of  course  without  success.  On  their  arrival  at  the  He  de  France,  John 
Mansell  was  the  first  officer  released  on  parole  by  Admiral  Linois,  and  he  returned  to  Europe  in 
1805.  A  few  months  later  he  married.  He  was  offered  the  command  of  the  "Coldstream," 
which,  on  his  declining  it  from  ill-health,  the  H.  Directors  were  pleased  to  confer  on  his  brother, 
James  Perchard  Mansell. 

('109)  William  Mansell,  F.C.S.,  M.D,,  Surgeon  H.  E.  I.  C,  arrived  in  India  in  1801,  and 
after  a  continuous  residence  there  of  above  twenty-three  years,  returned  to  Europe  in  1825. 
He  served  under  Lord  Lake  during  the  Mahratta  Wars  of  1803-4-5-6,  when  he  was  present  at 
many  battles  and  sieges,  among  the  former  at  Lasswarree,  November  ist,  1803,  when  Generals 
Ware,  and  Vandeleur  were  killed,  and  at  Deig,  November  i2fh,  1804,  when  General  Eraser  was 
killed.  Among  the  latter,  at  the  siege  and  capture  by  storm,  October  17th,  J803,  of  the  fortress 
of  Agra  ;  and  at  the  two  unsuccessful  storms  of  Bhurtpore,  January,  1805.  Dr.  Mansell  served 
also  in  various  campaigns  from  1812  to  1818,  and  received  the  war  medal  with  five  clasps  for 
Lasswarree,  battle  of  Deig,  capture  of  Deig,  Seetahbuldee,  and  Nagpore. 

(no)  Bonamy  Mansell  entered  the  Navy,  1800,  as  first-class  volunteer,  on  board  the 
"London"  98;  midshipman,  "  Royal  George"  100.  In  1805  he  sailed  for  the  East  Indies  in  the 
"Cornwallis"  50,  under  Captain  C.  J.  Johnstone,  which  vessel,  on  the  nth  November,  1806,  in 


the  company  of  the  "Sceptre"  74,  made  a  gallant  attack  on  the  " Semillante,"  French  frigate 
three  armed  ships,  and  twelve  sail  of  merchantmen,  the  whole  protected  by  seven  batteries 
mounting  upwards  of  one  hundred  pieces  of  cannon,  in  St.  Paul's  Bay,  Isle  de  Bourbon. 
On  board  the  "  Culloden "  74,  bearing  the  flag  of  Sir  Edward  Pellew,  he  witnessed, 
nth  December,  1S07,  the  destruction  of  the  dockyard,  and  stores  at  Griessee,  in  the  Island  of, 
Java,  and  of  all  the  men-of-war  remaining  to  Holland  in  India.  On  May  ist,  1S09,  we  find  him 
as  Lieutenant  on  board  the  "  Sapphire,''  taking  part  in  a  successful  engagement  with  two 
batteries  near  St,  Rose,  in  the  Isle  de  Bourbon.  Here  he  was  severely  hurt  in  the  leg  by  the 
premature  e.xpiosion  of  a  magazine,  containing  one  hundred  barrels  of  powder,  which  took  place 
while  he  was  in  the  act  of  pulHng  off  from  the  shore  with  a  message  to  Captain  Corbett.  He  was 
subsequently  concerned  in  the  capture  of  the  French  frigate,  "  Caroline,"  and  other  vessels  in 
St.  Paul's  Bay.  During  1812,  B.  Mansell,  at  that  time  in  the  "Helder"  36,  succeeded,  in  the 
presence  of  a  convoy  of  three  hundred  sail,  in  setting  fire  at  noonday  to  a  galliot  defended  on  the 
beacli  in  the  Great  Belt  by  a  sharp  fire  from  three  or  four  field  pieces  and  musketry — an  enter- 
prise which  occasioned  tlie  boats  under  his  orders  a  loss  of  two  midshipmen  and  of  at  least  ten 
or  twelve  men  killed  and  wounded.  He  had  also  tlie  good  fortune,  in  a  boat  of  the  same  ship, 
in  conjunction  with  another  belonging  to  the  "Bellette,"  to  effect  the  capture  of  a  valuable 
mercliantman  laden  with  linen,  which  afterwards  sold  for  ^11,000.  He  was  promoted  commander 
gth  April,  1847. 

(in)  Captain  Robert  Charles  Maunsell,  R.N.,  C.B.  (see  page  81),  entered  the  Navy  in  1799,  as 
first-class  vol.  on  board  the  "  Mermaid  "  32,  under  his  near  relative  Captain  (afterwards  Admiral) 
Robert  Dudley  Oliver,  fitting  for  the  Mediterranean.  He  attained  the  rating  of  Midshipman  in 
1800.  He  was  removed  in  1801  to  the  "  Maidstone"  32,  and  continued  most  actively  employed 
luitil  the  end  of  1804.  During  that  period  it  was  his  fortune  to  be  made  a  participator  in  many 
cutting-out  affairs,  but  particularly  on  i  ith  July,  1804,  when,  holding  therating  of  master's  mate, 
he  served  with  the  boats  of  the  "Maidstone,"  "Narcissus,"  and  "Seahorse,"  10  in  number, 
under  the  orders  of  Lieutenant  John  Thompson,  and  assisted  at  the  capture  of  12  settees,  lying 
at  La  Vandour,  in  the  Bay  of  Hieres.  In  this  conflict  they  encountered  a  tremendous  fire  of 
grape-shot  and  musketry  from  the  vessels,  as  well  as  from  a  battery  and  the  houses  of  the  town, 
sustaining  a  loss  of  4  men  killed  and  23  wounded.  Maunsell  was  severely  wounded  in  this 
affair,  and  in  consideration  of  the  injury  he  received,  the  Patriotic  Society  voted  him  a  gratuity. 
So  great  were  the  coolness  and  perseverance  developed  on  the  occasion  by  him,  that  on  7th 
March,  1805,  he  was  promoted  to  a  Lieutenancy  in  the  "  Princess  Royal,"  attached  to  the  Channel 
fleet.  He  was  ne.\t  appointed  in  1807  to  the  "  Blanche"  28,  on  the  East  India  station,  and  soon 
after  his  arrival  he  had  the  satisfaction  of  being  advanced,  by  a  commission  dated  15th 
February,  1808,  to  the  command  of  the  "  Procris  "  18.  Among  the  numerous  prizes  made  by 
Capt.  Maunsell  in  this  sloop,  may  be  included  the  capture,  in  1809,  of  the  Dutch  Company's  brig 
"  Wagsted.'  of  8  guns,  4  swivels,  and  86  men  (vide  Gazette,  i8ro,  p.  388).  On  the  morning  of 
31st  July,  181 1,  being  off  the  mouth  of  the  Indramarga  River,  coast  of  Java,  he  took  personal 
command  of  the  boats  of  the  "  Procris,"  together  with  the  two  flat-boats,  carrying  an  officer  and 
20  men  of  H.M.'s  14th  Regt.,  and  an  officer  and  the  same  number  of  men  from  H.M.'s  89th  Regt. 
With  a  degree  of  skill  and  ability  that  called  forth  the  after  thanks  of  Commodore  Broughton,  he 
led  them  ashore  to  the  attack  of  si.^c  of  the  enemy's  gunboats,  each  mounting  i  brass  32-pounder, 
carronade  forward,  and  i  iS-pounder  aft,  both  on  pivots,  with  a  crew  of  more  tlian  60  men,  and 
in  convoy  of  over  40  proas.  Although  the  latter  contrived  to  escape  by  hauling  through  the  mud 
up  the  river,  yet  five  of  the  armed  vessels  vi'ere  irresistibly  boarded  and  carried,  and  the 
remaining  one  destroyed,  this  too,  with  a  loss  of  only  1 1  men  wounded,  notwithstanding  that  the 
enemy,  in  addition  to  the  fire  of  their  guns,  kept  up  a  constant  discharge  of  musketry  (see 
Gazette,  181 1,  p.p.  2409-n).     As  a  revvard/or  his  meritorious  conduct  in  achieving  so  gallant  an 


exploit,  Capt.  Maunsell  was  almost  immediately  placed  in  acting-command  of  the  "Illustrious"  74, 
bearing  the  Commodore's  broad  pendant.  Prior  to  the  above  event  he  had  been  ordered  to  take 
charge  of  a  transport  with  400  troops  in  the  Sunda  Strait,  for  purpose  of  joining  the  e.xpedition, 
then  daily  expected  off  Batavia.  Owing  to  the  reluctance  felt  by  the  master  of  the  transport  to 
run  during  the  night,  Capt.  Maunsell  took  the  whole  400  men  on  board  his  own  vessel,  and,  by 
his  promptitude,  was  thus  enabled  to  reach  the  destination  two  days  previous  to  the  debarkation, 
whereas  the  transport  did  not  arrive  until  nearly  a  month  afterwards. 

During  his  two  months  command  of  the  "  Illustrious,''  he  served  on  sliore  throughout  all  the 
operations  which  terminated  in  the  fall  of  Java.  Here  he  enacted  a  distinguished  part,  on  shore, 
at  the  head  of  a  body  of  seamen,  and  ended  in  the  bombardment  and  storming  of  Fort  Cornells, 
26th  August,  iSii  (vide  Gazette  181 1,  p.  2404).  During  these  operations  young  Richard 
Maunsell,  son  of  William  Maunsell,  of  Castle  Park,  was  killed  (see  page  72),  and  Capt.  Maunsell, 
in  sympathetically  announcing  the  sad  news  to  the  lad's  family,  said,  "  he  fought  like  a  lion,  and 
died  like  a  lamb." 

On  the  night  of  loth  of  the  ensuing  month,  Capt.  Maunsell,  having  a  division  of  boats  under 
his  orders  in  the  neighbourhood  of  Samarang,  took  captive  a  large  sloop  rigged  gunboat, 
mounting  4  heavy  guns  and  2  brass  swivels,  a  Malayrigged  gunboat  carrying  i  i2-pounder 
carronade,  and  a  despatch  boat. 

On  7th  February,  1812,  he  was  confirmed  in  Post-rank,  and  in  the  following  August  was 
appointed  to  the  "  Chatham"  74,  bearing  the  flag  in  the  North  Sea  of  Rear-Admiral  Matthew  H. 
Y.  Scott. 

In  February,  1831,  he  was  placed  in  command  of  the  "Alfred"  50,  and  sent  to  the 
Mediterranean,  where  he  witnessed  the  establishment  of  King  Otho  on  the  throne  of  Greece,  and 
was  selected  to  watch  the  movements  of  the  hostile  fleets  of  Turkey  and  Egypt.  His  last 
appointment  afloat  was,  13th  May,  1840,  to  tlie  "Rodney"  92.  On  his  arrival  in  that  ship  off 
Alexandria,  he  was  instructed  by  Commodore  Napier  to  open  a  direct  communication  between 
the  Commodore  and  Mehemet  Ali.  Accordingly,  landing  close  to  his  Highness's  palace,  he 
managed  to  pass  the  guards  unmolested,  and  entering  the  presence  chamber,  without  intro- 
duction, had  the  good  fortune  to  obtain  a  very  flattering  audience,  and  fully  to  carry  out  the 
object  of  his  mission.  Next  day  he  landed  with  the  Commodore,  and  remained  until  the 
conclusion  of  the  celebrated  convention  between  that  dignitary  and  the  Egyptian  potentate. 

In  November,  1S42,  the  "  Rodney  "  was  the  means  of  rescuing  the  "  Formidable  "  84,  when 
that  vessel  was  on  shore  near  Barcelona  ;  and  in  the  ensuing  month  she  was  present  at  the 
leduction  of  that  city  by  the  force  under  Espartero.  In  the  spring  of  1843  she  was  despatched 
to  the  Cape  of  Good  Hope  with  the  7th  Dragoon  Guards,  a  company  of  the  45th  Regt,,  another 
of  Artillery,  and  150  men.     In  October,  1843,  she  was  paid  off. 

On  20th  July,  1838,  Capt.  Maunsell  was  nominated  a  C.B.,  and  in  April,  1844,  Sir  Robert 
Peel  spontaneously  appointed  him  a  Commissioner  of  Greenwich  Hospital,  as  a  tribute  to 
"  his  high  personal  character,  and  his  eminent  professional  service." 

See  O'Byrne's  Naval  Biographical  Dictionary,  1849,  PP-  745-6,  also  Gazettes  of  the  period. 

(112)  Amongst  other  monuments  of  the  Maunsell  family  in  Westminster  Abbey  (see  No.  57), 
is  a  tablet  showing  Coat  of  Arms,  Crest,  etc.,  and  with  the  following  inscription  : — 

"Here  under  is  buried  the  body  of  Edward  Mansell,  eldest  son  of  Sir  Edward  Mansell, 
of  Margam,  in  the  County  Glamorgan,  Bart.,  who  died  on  the  20th  day  of  June, 
1681,  in  the  15th  year  of  his  age," 

(113)  "Thomas  Mansell,  Esq.,  an  annuity  or  annual  rent  of  ;i^io,  during  his  life,  of  the  issue 
of  the  Manor  or  Lordship  of  Aldebourn,  in  the  County  of  Wilts,  by  the  hand  of  the  Receiver,  etc." 
Harl.  MSS.,  No.  433,  fol.  54,  bis.
